Yangon Taxi Registrations Cause Traffic Snarls in Laydaukkan Road

The Yangon Region Transport Authority (YRTA) office in Laydaukkan Road, in Thingangyu Township, has been at the centre of severe traffic congestion since November 15 when it began accepting applications for registration and renewals for city taxis.

On November 15, about 150 taxis queued along the road causing traffic jams.

Dr Maung Aung, secretary of YRTA, said some other places for parking would be arranged to reduce traffic congestion.

Commuters, however, said that the taxi registration and renewal process had lasted for about a week and severe traffic congestion had remained along the road.

“My office is in Tamwe Township and I live near the YRTA office. There has been traffic congestion since the registrations began,” a commuter said. “These days, though, the traffic jams are not as severe as seen on the opening day.”

Another commuter said she was now taking a long time to reach her office in Yankin Township.

“It would be quicker if I took a taxi. But I can’t afford that, so I have to take the bus,” she said.
