YRTA extends exemption of YBS daily management funds until Oct-end

Yangon Region Transport Authority (YRTA) has extended the exemption period for paying in the management funds by YBS buses until the end of October, according to YRTA.
Previously, YRTA set the exemption period deadline for paying in the management charges of K4,000 by 27 March and it has now been extended to 30 April. Then, the extension of the due date will be moved up to 31 October for the seven times to assist the YBS companies and the bus lines, according to YRTA.
“By doing so, YRTA is supporting YBS companies in one way or another,” said U Aung Nyi Nyi Maw, Managing Director of YRTA.
Earlier, over 4,500 YBS buses are running daily, with 1.8 estimated passengers. Now, YBS operates more than 900 buses from 109 bus lines, providing service for over 80,000 passengers in Yangon Region, according to YRTA.
YBS companies must report to the Yangon Region Transport Authority (YRTA) on their daily process such as applying for waivers and recording the routes as usual.
Moreover, YRTA is making efforts to solve the problems facing the YBS buses under the supervision of the Yangon Region Government if it is hard for them to overcome the difficulties, he noted.
At present, YRTA is cooperating with YBS companies to prevent the Covid-19 pandemic according to the guidelines and instructions issued by the Ministry of Health and Sports.
Before that, more than 100 bus lines are running 4,500 buses on 135 routes, along with the airport shuttle and city transit.
