Three-wheelers are experiencing a socioeconomic resurgence in the tourism industry in some townships within the Yangon Region and other regions and states.
U Myo Thiha, the project manager of Bajaj Three-wheeler Production, stated: “Our three-wheelers are equipped with 200cc engines and can cover 20 kilometres on a single litre of gasoline. This not only saves fuel but also makes maintenance affordable.”
Bajaj is among the micro, small, and medium enterprises operated by the government. The operation sources materials from India and assembles parts in the Kayin State Industrial Zone. According to U Myo Thiha, it provides employment opportunities for over 100 locals.
The government grants licences for driving three-wheelers in certain townships, including Yangon Region.
For years, three-wheelers have been a popular choice for short-distance travel in Mandalay Region. Oway has also incorporated three-wheelers into its transport services, utilizing them to ferry visitors within heritage zones and resorts across over 90 renowned travel destinations, including Bagan.
Buyers have the option to acquire three-wheelers through mid to long-term instalment plans, opening up additional income sources. There are also stands dedicated to three-wheelers.
Ko Aung Hsan Oo, a three-wheeler driver in Thanlyin Township, said: “It can travel 160 kilometres on K20,000 worth of fuel. I earn about K80,000 a day. Three-wheelers also offer greater comfort for both the driver and passengers. As a result, our family’s prosperity has increased”. — TWA/NT
