007 sskm 1

The Yangon Region Transport Committee (YRTC) has temporarily suspended the city taxis and freight vehicles registration services since 15 July due to a recent third wave of COVID-19 disease, according to the YRTC.
It had been only two weeks that the services were resumed as per the COVID-19 guidelines on 1 July, after being suspended since 16 March 2020.
The registration services of YRTC is reportedly suspended since the Department of Road Transport and The Department of Transport Planning have suspended public services, according to the Joint Secretary of the YRTC.
The resumption date will be announced in advance. However, it is difficult to say for sure because of the temporary suspension of services, he added.
During the resumption of services for two weeks, the YRTC provided 825 city taxis registration services at No.297, Thanthumar Road, South Okkalapa Township and 1,943 freight vehicles registration services near the office of the Transport Planning Department on Strand Road.
At present, the total number of city taxi registered vehicles in the Yangon Region is over 65,000, with more than 20,000 taxi licences from other regions and states. A total of around 50,000 freight vehicles are registered, according to YRTC. —Myint Mo/GNLM
