Mandalay highway buses to resume on June 1, but rules apply

Express buses operating from five terminals in Mandalay which follow the health ministry’s guidelines have been allowed to operate bus lines to other regions and states starting June 1, according to the Mandalay Region Bus Line Supervisory Committee (Highway).

The buses won’t get permission to resume operations if they don’t prepare in accordance with health guidelines, said U Aung Kyaw Lin, chairperson of the committee.

“Before the decision for bus lines to resume was announced, we instructed bus lines to make preparations in compliance with the health guidelines,” he said.

“However, when we carried out inspection today, we discovered that some bus lines have not made the full preparations. We won’t let them to run if they didn’t prepare completely.”

However, passengers will be required to adhere to social distancing rules. “All bus lines have started selling tickets. A passenger needs to buy two tickets per person. It will cost K24,000 for two tickets but we sell at K15,000 after reducing K9000 from the ticket price,” said U Myint Tin from Mahn Yarzar bus line.

The decision for one passenger to purchase two tickets was made by the Mandalay Region Supervisory Committee for Motor Vehicles which said that all Mandalay bus lines must charge passengers for two tickets, or double the price, starting from March 28.

There are 5 highway bus terminals in Mandalay.

Buses at Chan Mya Shwe Pyi (Kywel San Kan) terminal run to Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon, Mawlamyine, Magwe and Sittwe, buses at Thiri Mandalar terminal run to Monywa, Shwebo, Pakokku, Bhamo, Katha and Mogok, buses at Pyi Gyi Myat Shin and Daw Na Bwar terminals run to Shan State and Kachin State, and Maha Aung Myay terminal run to Pyin Oo Lwin and other towns. – Translated
