TÂY NINH – The Tây Ninh Province Department of Transport has green lighted Tây Ninh Tourist Trading Joint-stock Company’s proposal to operate electric buses on a trial basis in downtown Tây Ninh city and Hòa Thành District from early next year.
They will go around the foot of Bà Đen (Black Virgin) Mountain and the city’s main streets and to Long Hoa Market in Hòa Thành District.
A total of 20 14-seater buses will be used.
Tourists can hire these buses by the hour.
Now the company uses 14-23-seat electric buses to transport tourists inside the Bà Đen Mountain National Tourism Area. In future the company hopes to expand the electric bus services city-wide to improve traffic, protect the environment and dovetail with urban and socio-economic development plans. — VNS
