The Yangon Region Transport Authority (YRTA) is issuing city taxi registrations to Yangon licensed taxis. However, some 10,000 Yangon licensed taxis are yet to
register as city taxis, according to a report in Myawady Daily.
YRTA had officially announced that all taxis must register as city taxis before 31 December 2017. For unregistered vehicles, YRTA had extended the registration deadline to 31 January 2018. Even though YRTA extended the deadline, some 10,000 Yangon licensed taxis have not registered, said Dr. Maung Aung, secretary of YRTA.
“The announcement was made through the state-owned newspaper and television. The Yangon Region government will now take legal action against unregistered city taxis running on Yangon roads,” he added.
“Earlier, we registered our taxis at the Road Transport Administration Department. Now, we have to register our Yangon licensed taxis again as city taxis at YRTA, said a taxi driver.
