The public transport centre is where travellers can arrange transport to and from the airport. The airport features bus, public van, rail and car rental options to choose from. Sometimes it is easier to arrange transport to and from the airport prior to arrival as you might not get the best possible rate on the day.

This area of the airport consists of a parking lot and a waiting point. Here passengers can catch taxis, limousines and rent cars. Travellers can also catch public transport buses here at either of the two bus stations which are dedicated to Transport Company Limited and Bangkok Mass Transport Authority bus services.
