The service is managed by the Phnom Penh Municipal Government and formerly sponsored by the Japanese International Cooperation Agency. The fare for the public buses is KHR1500 per voyage irrespective of distance. Students and senior citizens travel free as of 2015.

Line 01 was the first Line established as part of the Phnom Penh bus rapid transit network.
Line 01 travels north/south along Monivong Boulevard going around Wat Phnom (stop 21), the Central Market (stop 30), near the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (Stop 41), Olympic Stadium (stop 37) and the Royal Palace and National Museum (stop 35).
Line B serves the western side along Mao Tse Tung Boulevard, going to Ta Khmao, the capital of the Kandal Province. Line B terminates at Night Market on Sisowath Quay. This line does not take you to Choeung Ek killing fields, as some sources claim. If you mention the killing fields the driver will tell you not to get on.
