YRTC to resume YPS card system

001 sskm

Te Yangon Region Transport Committee (YRTC) stated it would lead a project to resume the YPS card system for YBS passengers in Yangon City.
“According to the complaints, we know that the passengers currently get frustrated with some YBS lines. Some do not use the cash boxes and the drivers and conductors keep the bus fares in person and some ask for double charges. To overcome such difficulties of passengers, YRTC implements a programme to apply the YPS card system widely like before. We would start it in coming week,” said joint-secretary U Lyan Cin Mang of YRTC.
The YPS devices were installed on YBS buses in early 2019 and the passengers used more than 60,000 cards on 1,900 buses. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic broke out and so the YRTC will revive the system with the permission of Yangon Region Government.
Currently, some YBS buses failed to follow the regulations and so more than 500 buses were suspended. However, some bus lines still violate the regulations of YRTC.
The YRTC warned the YBS bus lines which do not follow the disciplines for many times before it revokes the licences. They took such action as the bus conductors took extra bus fares than the fixed amount. Therefore, the officials arrange to resume the YPS.
The YRTC fixes the YPS card price at K2,000 and buyers do not need to pay for the cards if they use K 3,000 top-up. The free distribution of cards will be conducted to a certain extent. —Myint Mo/ GNLM
