HA NOI - The Ha Noi People's Committee yesterday approved a VND1.2 trillion (US$ 57.4 million) proposal for Ha Noi Transport and Services Corporation (Transerco) to operate 49 additional city bus routes, including five routes exclusively serving municipal employees.
The Ha Noi Department of Transport's Transport Management and Operation Centre will oversee the purchasing of buses and plans for their safe operation.
