Myanmar's Yangon Bus Service (YBS) will implement a card payment system to replace the present cash box system to facilitate passengers in taking buses by the end of this year, Xinhua reported.

According to the Yangon Region Transport Authority Monday, more than 1,500 buses will get the e-ticketing machines in the initial stage.

The Asia Starmar Transport Intelligent Company, which is the tender winner for taking up the project, will start the trial run services by November or December once the imported machines of the system arrived in Yangon.
