YANGON? Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- A new bus system in Myanmar's Yangon? which was introduced on the first day on Monday? has made for a chaotic rush hour with large number of passengers being stranded on the roads.
The system? which reduces the number of bus lines from more than 300 to 70? has eased the traffic jam but caused chaos among congested passengers.
The first day of the new system saw fewer buses operating than expected? resulting in imbalance between the number of buses and passengers.
The official Global New Light of Myanmar reported that the shortage of buses and the ensuing delay prompted private buses from express bus lines and from tourist companies to voluntarily offer transportation to commuters who were crowded at bus stops.
Many other commuters used the circular trains which reported a jump in ridership.
All 300 bus lines running in Myanmar's former capital city of Yangon were abolished and replaced with 70 new bus lines starting Monday? according to the arrangement of the Yangon regional government.
The change is aimed at reducing traffic jam in the city and making the bus lines systematically formed.
The new bus lines are supervised by Yangon Region Transport Supervision Board? thus replacing the previous All Bus Line Control Committee.
At present? over 2 million people are depending on bus lines in Yangon where 6 million people are residing.

CAPE TOWN Air Max Sale Outlet , Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- A Huawei P8 Lite smartphone has saved the life of its owner, who was shot in the chest by armed muggers, by taking a bullet for him.
41-year-old Siraaj Abraham was ambushed by a pair of masked raiders late August when the South African businessman was pulling into his driveway outside his house in Cape Town.
During the fracas, one of the robbers shot Abraham in the chest from a distance of about two meters.
Thankfully, his Huawei P8 Lite unit, safely stored in his front pocket Nike Air Max 2017 Sale , took a 9mm bullet and ultimately saved the man's life.
It was reported that Abraham's heart had briefly stopped for a few seconds after the shot was fired. He was rushed to hospital after his 16-year-old daughter found him lying on the driveway outside his car.
Police are investigating the incident, saying that the two suspects are still at large.
The Huawei smartphoe does not have a metal body, but its plastic build managed to stop a bullet from a two-meter distance.
Images show the bullet hit the back panel of the handset and stopped before it could penetrate the front panel.
The smartphone is not functional anymore but Huawei presented Abraham with a brand new Huawei P9 Lite to replace his damaged phone.
Huawei also invited the Abrahams to attend all of the home matches of the Ajax Cape Town soccer team as a VIP guest; the world's third largest smartphone manufacturer is one of the sponsors of the team.
It is not the first time that a Huawei device has saved a man's life.
During the general elections in Kenya, a man named Millward Brown was almost hit by a stray bullet, but his Huawei Mediapad stored in his backpack stopped the bullet before it could do harm.
