HA NOI (VNS) — Ha Noi Bus Station One Member Co Ltd has planned to add more 510 buses to serve students taking part in the national university entrance examination early next month.
Nguyen Tung Anh, director of the company, said the number of passengers, mostly from northern cities and provinces, was forecasted to increase between 60 per cent and 130 per cent during peak time.
Specifically, My Dinh Bus Station will witness an increase of 130 per cent, Giap Bat Bus Station 90 per cent and Gia Lam Bus Station 70 per cent.
"230 buses will be added at Giap Bat Station, 205 at My Dinh Bus Station and 75 at Gia Lam bus station," he added.
The company has asked the stations to prepare spare buses in case more vehicles were required. The stations will be in charge of assuring security and order and controlling violations such as overcharging ticket prices, overloaded buses and drunk driving.
Around 96 universities and colleges are available in Ha Noi. This year, the number of candidates is estimated to reduce by 30 per cent compared to that of last year. The first stage of entrance exams will be held on July 5 and 6. — VNS
