A total of 232 new buses have been put into use in Lhasa, capital city of Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) in the southwest of China since December 19.

So far, Lhasa has replaced 579 old minibuses with new buses to cut exhaust emissions and provide more efficient public transport routes for citizens.

To better serve the public, the new public transit routes include ordinary buses for local citizens, luxury coaches and sightseeing buses for tourists, all of which are equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS) and are able to make announcements about the stations in Tibetan, Han and English.

The new routes covering 259 bus stops will run across the city.
Besides, more than 800 bus drivers and conductors have been employed.

As one of the 12 items relating to people's livelihood in 2010, the replacement of old minibuses and the use of new coaches has been going on since March, which is all funded by the Lhasa Municipal Government.
