Taxi Services, Shuttle Bus Available at Star City

Taxi service operators and shuttle bus services are now present in Star City, Yoma’s large-scale residential development in Thanlyin township, offering passengers more options to travel to Yangon downtown and Thilawa Special Economic Zone.

Daw Tin Winn Nge, general manager at Yoma Strategic, told The Myanmar Times that several operators are now offering taxi services in the vicinity. Oway has standby vehicles for residents and has opened a service booth in Block A1. Passengers can either order a taxi in person at the booth or call the Oway number to make a reservation.

Star City also runs daily shuttle bus services which takes residents to Yangon, dropping them off near the Yangon railway station and then picks passengers up in downtown to go back to the housing area. The schedule is designed to suit residents who have to work in the city centre. For weekends and public holidays, the bus services offer stops at various market place, shopping centres, Kandawgyi Park and People’s Park.

Additionally, the company is building a jetty to connect the area with Yangon.

“We will also be providing our own dedicated shuttle ferry service for residents too, which will allow connection to downtown Yangon in roughly 10-12 minutes – much quicker than by road. It will not only serve Star City residents, but also the whole Thanlyin township – Star City will become a transport hub,” Cyrus Pun, executive director of Yoma Strategic, said in December last year.

Star City is one of the two satellite towns developed by Yoma, which is a Singapore-listed, Myanmar-focused company chaired by leading businessman Serge Pun. The other one is Pun Hlaing Estate in Hlaing Thayar township.

Star City, which will boast 10,000 condominium units upon completion, seeks to strategically tap into the urbanisation and prosperity in Thanlyin, which will become more populous and affluent because of Thilawa SEZ. Yoma began sales of its Galaxy Towers at Star City in 2015. Star City is a community estate – it has a school, a swimming pool, shops, restaurants, a supermarket and is expected to host a hospital in the future. Yoma wants the area to become a mini-town in its own right, self-sufficient and enriched by its greenery.
