    The only public transport at Lampang Railway Station is a pair of motorbike taxi drivers who wait for passengers to arrive on the train. Expect to pay 40 to 60 THB to most destinations in Lamphun town. These motorbike taxi drivers are very friendly but speak no English at all or any other languages than Thai.
