A new ferry service system with a CCTV monitoring application installed is on a trial run as school buses during the 2018-2019 academic year in Yangon, said Yangon Region Transport Authority yesterday.
“The new system with the application would help parents and guardians to monitor their children going to school and returning home in real time through their mobile phones,” said U Nan Aung, who is in charge of Yangon school buses.
“We are working towards a goal of providing safe ferry services, which will help parents and guardians not to worry about their children,” he added.
The new system ferry service is on a trial run at the TTC -Kamayut and TTC –Yankin routes from 23 to 31 July.
The test run of the service is the first step of the Yangon Region government’s plan to provide a new modern ferry service for school children at 22 schools located on major roads and at heavy traffic sites in the municipal area of Yangon.
