HCM CITY (VNS) — The Ministry of Transport has instructed the HCM City Department of Transport to regulate traffic to ensure safety and security especially at bus stations during the long holidays when celebrations for the 40th anniversary of Reunification Day (April 30) will be held.
Transport operators and bus stations are required to keep an eye on buses leaving stations to prevent overloading and other problems.
Buses and taxis have been warned not to cause traffic jams while dropping and picking up passengers.
