BUSINESS – New Korean-backed bus line for downtown Mandalay

Myanmar Gaon, a newly announced conglomerate of Mandalay businesses and South Korean-owned Namsong, will establish a new bus line in downtown Mandalay following approval from the regional transportation minister, according to The Myanmar Times. The second city’s proliferation of motorbike in its urban centre means residents rely on buses less than in the capital city Rangoon, where motorbikes and mopeds are banned, though there are still 850 registered buses in the city.
