udon thani bus ticket

There are now two bus stations in the City (as of Nov 2011). Bus station #2 is in the city centre, near Central Plaza, a large mall, and a more active area. Another is in the outskirts of town on the road in from Loei towards NongKhai (bus station #1).
From Nong Khai, there is a bus station on Prajak Rd which has buses that go to both Udon stations. Close in price. However, they go to very different areas of Udon: 40 baht to station 1 (not preferred). Old bus, no A/C, you will be far from the city centre, and it makes many stops. 45 baht on a newer, first class bus to station 2.
If you end up at station 1 and want to go to station 2, there is a songthaew for 10 baht (it may go very slow to pick up other riders) or you can catch a tuk-tuk into town for around 80 baht.
Buses from Bangkok (Mo Chit), an 8-hour journey, arrive at the BKS station in the city.
You can follow the locals and hop on the waiting #6 songthaew to the bus station or take a tuk-tuk.
There are six express buses a day direct to the Morning Market in Vientiane (80 baht, 2 hours, air-con 1st class departures at 08:00, 10:30, 11:30, 14:00, 16:00, and 18:00). These cross-border buses will carry passengers who have not obtained their Lao visas in advance, but may NOT wait long enough at the border for a visa on arrival to be applied for and issued. This isn’t a problem when the queues are short, but at busy times passengers who don’t already have their visas may be left behind and have to continue by local bus or tuk-tuk.
A group called CS.&S Inter Travel Co., Ltd. offers bookings for the Government Bus leaving Bangkok for various destinations, including a Bus Ticket to Sakon Nakhon / Udon Thani. You can see the details there for yourself. I have never dealt with them, so I cannot offer any advice regarding them.
Another agency is Thaiticket Major — I have no experience with them, either. Select the Bus Ticket link, and then use the three search fields. It is required to enter a travel date. I have to say, I am not all that comfortable using the search.
Neither agency seems to offer too many bus choices throughout the day that are departing Bangkok for Udon Thani. Yet if Isan.Sawadee.com is to be believed:
Buses for Udon leave Bangkok’s Northern Bus Terminal (Mochit 2 Bus Terminal) throughout the day from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. The journey takes around 10 to 11 hours and the fare is 145 baht for regular buses (260 baht for air-conditioned buses). Timetables
Buses leave the main bus terminal in Khorat every half hour during the day and arrive in Udon five hours later. The cost is 81 baht for regular buses (146 baht for air-conditioned buses).
There are buses running between Udon Thani and other provinces such as Nong Khai, Loei, Khon Kaen, Sakon Nakhon, Nakhon Phanom and Ubon Ratchathani. The buses leave Udon Thani Bus Terminal every 40 minutes.
Throughout the day from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.? How is “throughout” defined, I wonder? The schedule is certainly helpful, but not so much for anyone unfamiliar with Isaan who has no idea which destination city involves a bus that actually passes through Udon Thani.
The two agencies I referred to earlier just happen to be a couple amongst a fair number through which buses can be booked. I did not select them for any particular reason. Perhaps refer to this UdonMap forum thread begun January 16 (2012) titled Bus Transportaion BKK to Udon Thani.
If Bangkok is to be your origin, perhaps the bus information at Thaiways will be of use to you.

The easiest way to make this trip is by direct BUS from Chiang Mai to Udonthani (there is no bus to Nong Khai – Thai-Lao border). Buy ticket in advance (one day or at least 6 hrs) from Arcade bus station, ticket box number 13.

Udon Thani Bus Station No 2 Nr Airport
Uploaded by tickettothailand on Feb 2, 2012
http://www.ticket-to-thailand.com: Udon Thani Bus Station No 2 services the airport and surrounding area. A Tuk Tuk will take you to the airport for around 80 – 100 baht and fly you off to Bankok in approx 1 hour, Not to be confused with Bus Station No 1 in the centre of town. We arrived at this one by mistake because no one in Nong Khai said there were 2, tuk to town about 5 k’s was 80 baht and ticket for 1 hour journey from Nong Khai was 70 baht. Work that one out! Udon Thani is a large town and was used by the americans as a base during the vietnam war and the built the airport. Be aware you will be mobbed by tuk tuk drivers the second you get off the bus so haggle hard on your fare!
