YTA to reduce Yangon passenger bus lines

The Yangon Region government will provide necessary assistance for those who want to set up public bus companies to upgrade the bus line system, according to Min Zaw, vice chair of the All Bus Lines Control Committee, who quoted Yangon Region chief minister Phyo Min Thein.

The regional government will help in importing new buses and will help procure bank loans to buy buses.

Under the previous government, bus owners faced difficulties as government authorities banned the reselling of old passenger buses to other regions and states. Most passenger buses running in Yangon are outdated. However, the regional government has allowed bus owners to resell old cars, Min Zaw added.

About 85 per cent of people in Yangon have to rely on public bus lines. The region government is planning to cut 25 bus lines in Yangon as some bus lines lack sufficient buses. The Yangon Transport Authority will form a committee to decrease the number of vehicles, said Dr Maung Aung, secretary of the YTA.

Min Zaw said “”We will et the put the abolishing of Dyna cars in the first place as these vehicles have caused a lot of traffic accidents.
