The Yangon Region Transport Authority (YRTA) has arranged for the operation of more buses for the convenience of university students appearing for their second semester exams, starting this month, said U Hla Aung, the joint secretary of the transport authority.
“During the university examination period, the YRTA will have more buses running along the regular routes as well as along other routes for the convenience of university students. We are making arrangements so students can sit for the exams with peace of mind, undisturbed by unreliable service of bus lines,” he added.
“Universities and colleges in Yangon Region will hold the second semester exams for the 2018-2019 academic year from September to October. So, the YRTA will run back-up vehicles along the regular routes to ferry students from universities,” he added.
“The university and college examinations in Yangon Region will be held from 2 September to 4 October. For students of the Myanmar Maritime University, the YBS 32 line will be run, with three buses plying from Kyauktine bus station in Tharkayta Township from 7 to 9 a.m. The other buses will operate along the regular routes,” said U Hla Aung.
“Exams will be held at the Myanmar Maritime University (Thanlyin), University of Economics (Ywar Thar Gyi), Dagon University, Eastern University (Thanlyin), West Yangon University (Htantabin), Technological University (Thanlyin), Technological University (Hmawbi), and West Yangon Technological University (Hlinethaya). We have already informed those universities about the running of the back-up vehicles,” according to the YRTA. During the first semester exams for the 2018-2019 academic year, the YRTA had operated 60 back-up buses for 2,000 students. (Translated by Hay Mar)
