Public urged to use city bus services

State-run Phnom Penh City Bus has renewed its call for people to use public transportation services to help reduce traffic congestion, accidents and environmental pollution in the capital.

Along with the appeal, it has also upgraded its City Bus App to keep users posted on bus lines and relevant information about its services.

The app, it said, shows all bus lines available. Users can select a line to view the current locations of buses on that route, and other details. The upgraded version of the app, which it said works faster than the previous one, can be downloaded for free via onelink.to/citybus from both the Google Play Store and Apple's App Store (requires iOS 10.0 or later).

In late January, City Bus also called on the public, especially motorcyclists, to stay clear of bus lanes and stops in order for the buses to operate smoothly and to avoid unforeseen traffic accidents.

The city bus services have been put back into operations recently after a long hiatus due to the community outbreak of Covid-19.
