The Ministry of Transport and Communications has issued an instruction to highway bus terminals to record the exact personal data of passengers before selling the tickets.
The bus lines must take the record of passengers’ names, CSC numbers, addresses and contact phone numbers, place the passengers as per the seating plan after checking the data again and check the CSC cards and passengers.
“We cannot buy the tickets as we want. It needs a recommendation letter and a copy of the CSC card. We cannot buy for others. Although we can purchase tickets online previously, we have to give our personal information at the bus stations now,” said Ko Khin Tun from Lanmadaw Township.
