A survey on taxis currently running in Yangon Region will be conducted starting from the third week of December, according to the Yangon Transport
After turning in the survey to City Taxi, the vehicles will be handled by a company and a GPS system will be installed in the taxis so that they are easier to monitor, said Dr. Maung Aung, the secretary of the Yangon Transport Authority.
To collect accurate data on taxis, the forms are already sent to the township and ward administrative offices and the taxi drivers can be listed at those offices.
Conducting the survey will set a certain period of compliance, and those taxis that fail to be listed will no longer be permitted to operate in the city. Taxis with the licenses outside Yangon are increasing in the city, according to Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC).
Out of over 500,000 cars registered with Yangon Region Road Transportation Administration Department, over 60,000 licensed cars are running as taxis, it is learnt.
