HCM CITY – The HCM Public Passenger Transport and Management Centre has said 1,048 more trips will be operated on 17 city bus routes between December 31 and January 2 to cope with the New Year rush.
The centre said on December 8 that increasing the number of trips would improve passengers’ safety and comfort, and instructed bus operators to prepare well, saying if the number of passengers increased sharply, they should be ready to operate more buses.
The centre will also operate 25 additional inter-provincial buses at the Miền Tây Coach Station on December 30 and 31.–VNS
