The two Yangon-based highway bus terminals – Aung Mingala and Dagon-Ayeya highway bus stations are carrying about 8,000 passengers per day in the second week of September.
The number of passengers has decreased than due to the detection of the COVID-19 Omicron subvariant. In September, about 120 bus lines of the Aung Mingala Highway Bus Terminal operate over 300 express buses while over 50 bus lines of the Dagon-Ayeya Highway Bus Terminal more than 180 express buses.
The Yangon Region Transport Committee (YRTC) also inspects the highway express bus lines and passengers at the bus terminals to ensure the wearing of face masks to meet the COVID-19 health rules and conducts health education programmes for passengers in downtown Yangon. The YRTC also released statements to bus lines of highway bus terminals not to increase highway bus fares in the Thadingyut holidays.
There are 366 highway bus lines – 233 lines at the Aung Mingala Highway Bus Terminal and 133 lines at the Dagon-Ayeya Highway Bus Terminal. Currently, over 170 lines of both bus terminals are running about 490 express buses for 8,000 passengers daily. — Nyein Thu (MNA)/GNLM
