By The Irrawaddy 15 January 2018
YANGON—The Yangon Bus Service (YBS) marks its first anniversary on Tuesday. The following infographic offers a snapshot of the service’s operations based on the latest available data, from December.
The replacement of the old public bus system operated by the Yangon Motor Vehicles Supervisory Committee, or Ma Hta Tha, with the YBS was one of the first major reforms initiated in the nation’s commercial capital by the National League for Democracy-led government. It launched with 2,900 buses running on 69 bus lines. A year later, the service comprises 96 lines serving more than 2 million commuters daily across the city of 5.2 million people.
