Yangon bus payment cards to launch on July 21

The Yangon Payment System (YPS) will be launched on July 21, for a total of 597 buses run by the Yangon Public Bus Company (YPBC) and Bandoola bus lines.
“The new payment system has been installed for buses travelling short distance flat payment routes, and will be installed in the longer-distance buses in the next three months,” the Yangon Region Transport Authority (YRTA) joint-secretary U Hla Aung said on July 8.
Cards will be sold at 102 Grab & Go stores, as well as three YPS service centers in Sule, Thamine and Tarmwe. Passengers will be able to scan the YPS cards to pay for a single bus journey – first when they get on, then before alighting.

Bus lines to pioneer card system include YPBC numbers 43, 62, 72, 87, 88 and 89, and the Bandoola line numbers 12, 14, 25, 30 and 38.
“Each YPS card will be sold for K2000. Customers can recharge for a minimum amount of K1000. The new system will be advertised on buses, with material showing
passengers how to use the cards properly,” Daw Yi Yi Khin, chief marketing officer from Asia Starmar Transport Intelligent Company, said. – Translated
