Good news for late-night arrivals at Yangon International Airport.
Starting Sunday, the express Airport Shuttle bus that runs from the airport to the heart of Yangon will be running 24/7, Omni Focus, the line operator, announced yesterday on their Facebook page.
The bus line runs from Yangon International to downtown’s central railway station, and while it makes stops at major intersections, shopping areas, and tourist attractions, it remains the cheapest way to get into town.
You can hop on the bus for just 500 kyat (about 30 cents) and get off at stops including St. John City Mall, Bogyoke Market (Junction City), Sule Shangrila, Sule Pagoda, Shwedagon Pagoda, or Myanmar Plaza.
“A 24-hour service will make traveling more convenient,” Omni Focus managing director Htun Tauk Win told the Myanmar Times in an interview today, adding that nighttime workers will also benefit from the expanded hours.
He also mentioned that the company plans to add “security measures,” including posting a guard on board all day, given the new schedule.
Buses into the city will run every 30 minutes after 10pm.
