He easily put the backpack aside and held the lunch box in one hand. His hair seems to be neatly combed, but because the car is crowded, his earplugs are falling out, and he has sweaty pores all over his body. It’s not just him. As if the whole car was in a steam distiller, the heat was sizzling and sizzling.


The girl’s anxiety spread to everyone. I was standing next to him, so my anxiety would be even greater. Driving 0 YBS No. 61 in Yangon was full of anxiety. It’s no longer unusual because the problem encountered when riding a bus is faced by every resident, but (61) every bus rider is more than that. Why do they suffer more from (61) bus riders even if they are the same passengers?

All the (61) big buses are more old than other cars. A car with sunroof aircon is rare in number (61). There is no internet, no problem for me. It is important to arrive at the destination on time to make the ride comfortable, but when you are driving slowly, Due to the events that tend to crowd people, I was disappointed again. In that case, why not take another bus?

There is only one (61) bus from where I live to where I work. So, I ride (61) every morning at 7:00 a.m. from the Insein Photawwa stop, where I live, to the Kartan Kyaw Agriculture stop, where I work. sometimes 6 hours; I still go at half past six. Every evening at 6:00 p.m., I usually go back to Paktawwa stop on the same (61) ride at the agriculture stop.

Except for Sundays and other holidays (61), he did not miss a single day of riding. go to the office I even went to the office by that bus, so (61) I am already a customer.

It should also be said that according to the changed 0UBS route system, there is only one bus to go directly to Suleiman from the point where I live. Since the car came from Hlaing Tharya, it was packed with people by the time it reached Phong Taw Wa. Don’t think that you will be followed by another train. The next ride will be tighter. people While sweating, the driver screamed and was very disappointed, but he couldn’t do it. There is no other ride except that car.
