1,000 Buses ordered from China


Yangon Region Transport Authority (YRTA) has ordered 1,000 buses, costing US$56,000 each, from China to be used by the Yangon Bus Service (YBS), Dr Maung Aung, secretary of the YRTA said.

The ordered buses will arrive in Myanmar at the end of April. Another 2,000 buses will be ordered from China after the arrival of the first batch, Dr Maung Aung said.

Speaking in Yangon, Dr Maung Aung said some YBS lines violated rules and people complained about the problem. The bus line numbers involved were No. 6, No. 7 and No. 39. Immediate action was taken when violent incidents were reported, Dr Maung Aung said.

“Some YBS lines violated rules. Buses compete with each other to get passengers. Yangon’s chief minister said changes would be made every three months.

“Bus line numbers 6, 7 and 39 are complained about the most. The complaints said that they do not stop at the bus stops regularly, that they take more fares than the regular payments, and that the conductors were rude to the passengers.

“Action must be taken immediately against people who assault passengers. We have already taken 20 reports and we are monitoring buses with the help of CCTV,” Dr Maung Aung said.
