Five new bus routes expected to be added in early July

City Hall expects to add five additional bus routes in Phnom Penh in early July, following the arrival of 100 buses donated from China, according its spokesman Met Measpheakdey. The 100 public buses will be rolled out to expand on the old lines, and to add new lines that would cover some of the major roads, such as Street 271, he said, adding that would help the city reduce car traffic while also improving access to public transport. On average 6,000~7,000 people utilize the city’s bus services, with 57 buses currently covering three routes; however, as an additional 100 buses are set to hit Phnom Penh in just a number of days, he expects the number of users to double in time. It currently costs KHR1,500 to catch the bus, but public transport is free for students, people with disabilities, monks, and the elderly. Measpheakdey assured that ticket prices would remain unchanged as the new buses are rolled out. (Source: Phnom Penh Post)
