The Yangon Region Transport Committee announced that there will be a reduction in the number of YBS buses available to one-third of the original number during the Thingyan water festival and vowed to take action against any instances of fare overcharging, according to U Lyan Cin Mang, joint secretary of the committee.

He added: “Even though we observe fewer commuters during the Thingyan holiday, suspending the entire operation is impractical. We require all bus lines to continue operating, albeit at a reduced capacity, and will closely monitor any instances of fare overcharging and unauthorized passengers besides the driver.”

In Yangon Region, more than 650,000 commuters rely on YBS, or Yangon Bus Service, which operates nearly 3,000 buses daily.

Throughout the Thingyan holiday, from 13 to 16 April, around 60 bus lines under 16 companies will maintain operations with over 1,200 buses in service daily.

On Myanmar New Year Day, 17 April, all 18 companies will resume operations at full capacity, with three bus lines from the Thet Yin Aung Company offering free service. — ASH/NT
