Yes. Bus no. 825 runs the following route:
Suvarnabhumi Airport – Nakhonratchasima – Khonkhaen – Udonthani – Nongkhai
If you’re headed to Udon Thani for the purpose of crossing into Laos you should stay on until the bus terminates at Nongkhai.

There are now two bus stations in the City (as at Nov 2011). The usual one in the city centre near Central Plaza, and now another on the outskirts of town on the road in from Loei towards NongKhai. Tuk Tuk into town some B80 from here.
Buses from Bangkok (Morchit), an 8-hour journey, arrive at the BKS station in the city.
Buses depart at least once per hour after 11AM to Nong Khai (20 baht, 1 hour, non-airconditioned 3rd class) on the Lao border. Buses from Nong Khai may drop you off north of the city. 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 8AM, 10:30AM, 11:30AM, 2PM, 4PM, 6PM). 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.
Udon Thani has a bus-like network of numbered pick up trucks with 2 benches in the back songthaews; cost is 8 or 10 baht per trip (10 baht outside ringroad).
There are limited city bus routes.
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 bahts for regular buses (260 bahts for air-conditioned buses). Contact Transport Co. Ltd at Tel: 0-2936-2852-66 for more information.
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 bahts for regular buses (146 bahts 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.
From Lonely Planet:
For most destinations, including Bangkok’s Northern bus terminal (air-con 443B, eight hours, every 15 minutes), buses use Udon’s old bus terminal (0 4222 1489; Th Sai Uthit) or the street in front of it. Other air-con buses include those to Khorat (193B, 4½ hours, every 20 minutes), Sakon Nakhon (109B, 3½ hours, every 15 minutes), Khon Kaen (104B, 2½ hours, every 20 minutes), Pattaya (504B, 10 hours, 10 daily) and Vientiane (80B, two hours, six daily; you must already have a Lao visa). Many companies, including 999 VIP (0 4222 1489) and Roongprasert Tour (0 4234 3616), operate 24-seat VIP buses (640B) to Bangkok in the evening.
The new bus terminal (0 4224 7788) is on the Ring Rd on the western outskirts of the city (take the Yellow Bus or sǎwngthǎew 6) and has buses to western destinations, including Loei (ordinary/air-con 60/110B, three hours, every 30 minutes) and Chiang Mai (air-con/32-seat VIP 563/657B, 12 hours, eight daily).
For Nong Khai (ordinary 40B, one hour) you can use either terminal, but the most frequent departures are from Rungsina Market.
And from MaxTravelz:
Buses from Bangkok, an 8-hour ride, arrive at the BKS station to the north of the city. There are departures at least once per hour to Nong Khai (20 baht, 1 hour, non-aircon 3rd class) on the Lao border, and four express buses a day direct to Vientiane (80 baht, air-con 1st class).
Buses from Nong Khai may drop you off north of the city. Follow the locals and hop on the waiting #6 songthaew for the ride to the bus station, or be left at the tender mercies of the tuk-tuk mafia.
Udon Thani has a bus-like network of numbered songthaews; cost is 7 baht per trip.
Sawadee.com has a North East (Isan) Bus Timetables, but the darn thing doesn’t even list Udon Thani — whose block-headed notion was that, I wonder?
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) website has information on the Thai-Lao International Bus Service, including schedules.
For a great photo-essay of Udon Thani’s buses, refer to a post in the blog Thai Mass Transport Systems from February 10, 2010, titled Udon Thani’s Mass Transit System.
