City Hall is considering expanding city bus routes from eight to a total of 13, a spokesman said on Thursday.
Spokesman Met Meas Pheakdey said officials are conducting a study and mapping potential routes for the additional bus routes.
“We currently operate eight routes. Now, we are considering expanding the amount of routes our buses will cover,” Mr Meas Pheakdey said. “We are now conducting a study, and we will seek approval and wait for a final decision.”
“We don’t know yet when the plan can be implemented,” he added. “We need to have the buses first as well.”
The Phnom Penh Autonomous Bus Transportation authority said on Wednesday that the five additional routes will commence operation at the beginning of October.
It said that the buses will come from the Japanese government.
Last month, the City Hall said Japan offered 40 buses to the city. There are currently 190 buses operating throughout Phnom Penh.
