Myanma Railways will transform five train stations into model ones and provide rail commuters with better services, said MR’s General Manager (Lower Myanmar) U Tun Aung Thin said yesterday.
According to the MR, the targeted five train stations are Yangon Central Railway Station and Insein, Bago, Mingaladon and Danyingone railway stations.
Railway staff have been given training to provide better service to the train passengers, said the general manager, adding that works are also underway to improve infrastructure along with a capacity building program.
Stressing the convenience of train travel, the MR organized a two-day training course at its office in Yangon yesterday in cooperation with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) following a similar course in Nay Pyi Taw on 3-5 August.
Mr. Mitsuo Higashi, policy adviser to the MR, expressed his view that better services are needed for passenger satisfaction, saying that it is required to ensure security in the railway yard and develop infrastructure and human resources for the railway transport service.
Yangon’s circle line is 46km long and has 38 stations. More than 73,000 passengers depend on rail transport every day in Yangon.
