YBS drivers who used assistants have been permanently banned from driving YBS, according to Yangon Region Public Transport Committee (YRTC)’s joint secretary U Lyan Cing Mang.
“CNG for YBS vehicles with driver assistants is suspended for three months. For diesel cars, it is suspended for one year. The drivers are permanently banned from driving YBS. They can drive other cars. They cannot drive YBS buses. We have been taking action. It is not about fines. Our aims are for YBS services to be disciplined, safe and better public transport services,” he said.
The stickers “No conductor allowed” will be placed on buses, he added.
“We will put stickers saying “No conductor allowed” on the buses. By doing so, commuters will know that conductors onboard are not legal, and they can report it. With conductors, the drivers used to compete to drive faster, fight with each other and demand extra fares. So, we plan to eradicate the presence of unauthorized conductors on the buses. We will put these stickers at three locations on the buses,” he said.
According to YRTC’s data, more than 3,600 buses on 131 bus routes carry about 1.4 million commuters every day. – MT/ZN/Ed
