Yangon Transport Authority will be formed in July

Yangon transport Authority (YTA) will be formed with road transport experts and water transport experts under the leadership of the Yangon Region government within second week of July, according to Dr Maung Aung, chairperson of the Yangon Bus line Public Company Ltd.
As soon as Yangon Transport Authority is formed, the existing bus lines of 358 will be combined into 100 lines as an initial step.
“It is not possible to keep only 50 bus lines in the beginning. So, we will start with 100 bus lines with one or two weeks after forming Yangon Transport Authority, said Dr Maung Aung, who is expected to become the secretary of YTA.
YTA will set specific rules and regulations for downtown transportation whereas All-Private Bus-Lines Control Committee will no longer supervise lines when Yangon Transport Authority Law has been enacted.
The All Private Bus-Lines Control Committee will act under the direction of Yangon Transport Authority. Bus owners are favoring the YTA.
There are 358 bus lines at the moment with over 4,700 buses carrying more than 2.6 million commuters daily, it is learnt from the All Private Bus-Lines Control Committee.—YCDC
