HCMC – The HCMC transport authority allowed 30 more bus routes to resume operations starting today, November 15, raising the total number of operational routes in the city to 85.
These 30 include route Nos. 6, 8, 10, 53, 44, 99 and 146, with 29 being subsidized routes and one a non-subsidized route, which is route No.94 that links the Cho Lon Bus Station with the Cu Chi Bus Station. They will operate daily from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Earlier, all public passenger bus services in HCMC had to suspend operations as the city enforced the social distancing mandate to curb the spread of the coronavirus. By October, four bus routes in the outlying district of Can Gio resumed operations first after the city lifted the stay-at-home order.
As of November 12, up to 55 bus routes had been restarted in the city.
The southern hub currently has 126 bus routes, including 90 subsidized routes and 36 non-subsidized ones.
