Central city to improve management of cyclo services
The Thua Thien – Hue Province's Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism has approved a project to better manage the xich lo (pedicabs) operating in Hue City.
The trade union is going to be given VND120 million (US$5,700) to improve the pedicab services by training drivers and giving them uniforms and repairing and painting all pedicabs purple.
Pedicab tour prices will be fixed and notified publicly.
But this will only cover pedicab drivers affiliated to the trade union. There are more than 2,000 others who are not members.
The project was launched following many complaints by visitors against pedicabs, including about overcharging. — VNS
