BLUE (B1), GREEN (B2) and RED (10). B1 and B2 price is 10B - 15B. Doesn't matter if you travel just 1 stop, or the entire route, the price is set at 10B - 15B. For bus 10, the price is a little more, 15B - 20B. Below is a map. It shows each of the routes as a coloured line and the bus stops / pick up points are shown as red dots.

If anyone can add to this or post some useful information about public, cheap or free transport around Chiang Mai, i'm sure it will be a very useful topic to many.
