  1. Hi,

    Thank you so much for such an informative posting. This is exactly what i need. How ever, could you please be kind enough to inform me, whether the YBS from the Yangon central to airport also starting at 4am or 5am? I have a flight to catch by 8:45. If the supposed bus could leave by 5am from the yangon central, do you think i have enough time to catch the flight, or i should just drop ybs and catch taxi instead? Looking for your favorable reply

  2. Hi my flight is at 11:00am for tomorrow12th Dec2018 what is good time to caught your bus from yangoon main train station to terminal 1 if u reply soonest be very appreciated

    • Hi Angel, we recommend you to take the bus 4 hours ahead of your departure time since Yangon traffic is not predictable at the moment. Thank you!

  3. Hey, we want to take the Shuttle Bus to the Airport. We stay in wingabar road in clover hotel. Where we can take the Shuttle ? Our flihtt is at 17 pm. When we have to take the bus?
    Greetings Irene

    • Hi Irene, the nearest bus stop to Clover hotel is “Shwe Gone Dine” Bus stop on the Kabar Aye Pagoda Road. They will have to walk though. The bus route will go to downtown on the Strand Road first before going straight to The Yangon International Airport. Downtown has traffic and 17pm is a rush hour for sure so it is advisable to take the bus at least 2 hours before your check in time at the airport.

  4. Hi. We will be staying at the Panda Hotel 205, Corner of Wadan Street & Min Ye Kyaw Swa Road. Coming from the airport, which would be the nearest stop to the hotel, please?

  5. Hi, thank you for the helpful information. Can I also know what time does the first bus depart from city to airport? I want to take the bus by 6:00-6:30am at Sule square.

    • Hi, the buses operate now 24 hrs and we suggest you to wait at the bus-stop opposite to Sakura Tower (Hitachi) by 30 minutes ahead time of your desired schedule. Each bus leaves in every 5-10 minutes.

  6. Wow, just appreciate ur prompt response to all readers! This shuttle bus used to run in 2 directions. Do u mean the Pyay Rd direction has been cancelled or has it been combined with the other route? Also, does it run in 1 direction only, i.e. passengers can only catch the bus on one side of the road? Thank you for your response! 😊

  7. Hi Min Ye,
    Is the airport shuttle service nearby the Rangoon Boutique House ?
    Which stop should I get off?
    How long will I have to walk from the stop to the House?

  8. Hi! I’m staying at Shwe Yo Vintage Hostel and they recommend getting the shuttle bus to Nyaung Pin Layy Zayy bus stop. If I catch a bus at around 10pm, will this be possible? Is where the bus departs from easy to find? Thank you!!


    • Hi Alicia, it would be only 5-10 mins to get to your destination. And please find the red bus with Yangon Airport Shuttle bus on front LED.

    • Hi Phillipp, please kindly follow the stops as we mentioned. We’ve directly copied the stops from their official Facebook page.

  9. Hallo one more Question . How Long does it take … aproximatly to ride downtown and does this Bus also run into ChinaTown. I do have an Reservation in Grand Hotel 21.Street ?

    • Hello Walter, it normally takes an hour or longer to get to Chinatown from the airport. The nearest bus-stop is the Yangon General Hospital one. Good luck!

  10. Hi Admin,

    I’m planning to visit Tatmadaw hall and also plan to stay at Alfa Hotel.
    Where is the nearest bus stop for the place?

    thank you.

    • Hi Ake Bono, we are sorry to say that there’s no bus-stop near Esperado. But if you really want to try, please drop off at Yangon Railway Station (Gophyu road) and you will need 20/25 mins walk to Esperado.

  11. Hi, how do I go to Aung Mingalar station with this bus from airport. I arrived airport in evening and I plan to stay in the airport until morning then need to reach Aung Mingalar bus station by 830am to take elite express bus which ticket already bought.

    Could you share detail how I can take bus from airport to Aung Mingalar and reach by 8am half hour before my bus time at elite?


    • Hi Wendy, unfortunately there’s no shuttle bus to Aung Mingalar station from Airtport. We suggest you to take a cab which will cost around $3/4 (30000Ks) and it will take 2o minutes if there’s no traffic.
