The name of the company that will install a card system for the Yangon Bus Service (YBS) will be announced on 10 January, according to a recent report in Myawady Daily.
Anypay Payment Services Company, Asia Starman Transport Intelligent Co and Excel KC Myanmar Company were initially selected to provide services for Yangon Payment Services (YPS). Their required documents have to be submitted by 4pm, 5 January.
The tenders will be evaluated with the final bidders on 8 January, and the company that wins the bidding will be announced on 10 January.
The winner will be assigned three tasks — card issuing, card acquiring and card top-up agency.
The Yangon Region government is making arrangements to install a card payment system to make it more convenient for commuters, as YBS buses are currently installed with cash boxes to replace bus conductors, which has resulted in a scarcity of small notes. –GNLM
