60 mini-buses to come into service in Sanya to facilitate passengers
Sanya will put 60 mini-buses into operation soon, in order to solve the transportation problems in the central part of the city, reports news.0898.net.
At present, there are a total of 25 routes in Sanya with more than 450 buses. The number of buses is enough to cover the city.
However, as the downtown center has a dense population with narrow streets, some large buses can not easily go through these places. Moreover, many residents find it difficult taking taxis especially during rush hours. These mini-buses are designed to alleviate the transportation problems in the central part of the city.
The mini-buses will run at designated or non-designated stops in some narrow streets.
At present, the routes, ticket price and size of mini-buses are under discussion. It is estimated that they will be put into operation shortly after this year’s Spring Festival.
