MORE THAN 2,000 YBS buses have had Global Positioning System (GPS) devices installed under the arrangement of the Yangon Region Transport Authorities (YRTA), according to a report of the Myawady Daily’s Yesterday edition.
The government is covering the cost for this programme. The YRTA said it continues to install GPS systems on both old and new public transport buses operating within the city free of charge.
Priority is being given to buses running within the six downtown townships, according to the YRTA.
The aim of the installation of GPS systems on buses is to track bus routes, check locations and distances between individual buses and see images from inside the bus. Thanks to this system, transport authorities can easily check and monitor the status of the images, location and route times of the buses.
U Myo Myint, managing director of Bandoola Transport Co, said the GPS units are being installed on five buses per day, adding that nearly 150 buses operating under his company have already had GPS units installed.
