Yangon Region Transport Authority (YRTA) has said that legal action will be taken against the YBS lines which fail to comply with the terms and conditions when placing advertisements on the buses. “The bus lines must follow the 2020 Vehicle Safety and Motor Vehicle Management Law and 2018 Yangon Municipal Law, which are related to placing advertisements,” said U Hla Aung, joint secretary of the YRTA.
At present, some YBS bus lines are conducting election campaigns by flying political party flags on the YBS buses operating in Yangon region. “We have found that it can cause unnecessary problems among the passengers if the bus lines are launching election campaign by hoisting party flags on the public buses,” he said.
“Therefore, we have informed the bus line companies and the privately supervised bus lines that they need to comply with those rules and regulations or face legal action,” he added. Therefore, YRTA has an announcement that YBS bus lines will have legal action taken if they fail to comply with those terms and conditions, which are related to the posting of the advertisements on the YBS buses, according to YRTA.
