A total of 2000 buses have already been imported by the government to fulfil the demand, said Yangon Chief Minister U Phyo Min Thein on June 9 at the press conference marking the anniversary of the new government.

The YBS began on January 16 in an effort to reform the outdated public transport system, but it is still marked by difficulties and flaws. However, the government has taken steps to bring Yangon Bus System (YBS) in line with the international standard of public transport.

“Now the government and private companies have already imported a total of 2600 new buses and will replace old buses systematically,” said U Phyo Min Thein.
