All highway express buses travelling on the Yangon-Mandalay Expressway required installing a telematics system in order to avoid road hazards, according to Staff Officer of the Department of Transport Planning U Sithu Tun.


By installing telematics system on highway passenger buses travelling from 0 to 336 mile-posts of the Yangon-Mandalay Expressway, the Common & Control Centre monitors the movement of these buses 24 hours a day, and check whether they are driving according to the specified route and speed.


“This is what we are doing in cooperation with the Ministry of Transport and Communications, and the Ministry of Construction after introducing the system quoting existing laws. The system will be installed on buses running along the Yangon-Mandalay Expressway starting from May. The installation of the telematics system in buses will be undertaken by Myanmar Millennium Group.  It is a must do measure. Thanks to the system, passengers will be able to travel safely to their destinations,” said U Sithu Tun.


Starting from May 2024, the passenger bus lines that fail to install the system will be warned, prohibited and taken action step by step.


In Nay Pyi Taw Bawgathiri highway bus terminal, there are more than Nay Pyi Taw-based 30 highway bus lines and more than 110 highway passenger bus lines from various regions and states, totalling more than 140.— ASH/TKO
