HCM CITY — HCM City is piloting five areas for taxis to pick up passengers in District 1 beginning on August 8, according to Trần Vĩnh Tuyến, vice chairman of city’s People’s Committee.

The six-month pilot project will be evaluated and expanded if it is proven effective.

The five taxi pick-up areas will be at 139 Nguyễn Du Street, 16 Alexandre De Rhodes Street, Children’s Hospital No 2,  29 Lý Tự Trọng Street and 3 Hàn Thuyên Street.

Besides the space designated for taxis, the pick-up spots have waiting areas on the pavement, with “no parking” signs posted.

The city said the taxi pick-up stops would ease traffic congestion and make taxi services more efficient in District 1, the city’s central business district. — VNS
