Tibet introduced 775 tourist buses to alleviate transport
pressures brought by booming tourism in the region, said a local
official on Saturday.
Tourism companies and transport authorities added 775 buses
which brought the region's total number to 2,777, said Zhao Shijun,
the Tibet Communications Department director.
Tibet received four million tourists from both home and abroad
in 2007, up 60 percent from 2006.
The remote southwestern region has seen a tourism boom in the
past few years, especially since the Qinghai-Tibet rail service
began in July 2006.
