In Yangon, starting on 16 January, the new Yangon Bus Service will be launched and volunteers who will help for the convenience of the public are being invited by the Yangon Region Transport Supervision Authority, it is learnt. Volunteers will help passengers with new routes and answer questions at bus stands with the motto—“Let us help you reach your destination!”
Those wishing to contribute voluntary labour can submit their names through the Yangon Bus Service (YBS) Facebook page—https /www.facebook.com/yangonbus, or through respective Hluttaw representatives in the townships or civil societies.
The Yangon Region Cabinet will substitute the new Yangon Bus Service for the former Ma Hta Tha systems under the supervision of the Yangon Region Transport Supervision Authority. Eight companies will manage to run the system with 60 bus lines. —GNLM
