A medium and long term plan for public transportation for residents in the Yangon area will be carried out in line with the recently completed joint study between the city planners and representatives from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
The joint study took 20 months to complete and will serve as the master plan for the development of public transportation that includes bus and rail lines entering and leaving Yangon, Zeya Aung, the Minister of Railways Transports, told the Upper House Assembly.
