HCMC – Can Tho City reopened riverway services via 12 terminals linking with the neighboring provinces of Vinh Long and Dong Thap starting October 27, and also resumed 48 interprovincial passenger transport routes until now.
The municipal Transport Department said the riverway services were resumed after over three months of suspension to cope with the latest Covid outbreak.
The 12 riverway terminals include Can Tho-Binh Minh, Con Khuong-Thanh Loi, Co Bac-Chom Yen and Cai Chom-Xeo La. Meanwhile, the riverway service at the Con Khuong-Binh Tan terminal remains suspended until further notice due to the expiration of a bidding contract to operate the terminal, reported Tuoi Tre newspaper.
The city’s transport authority asked the operators of the terminals and the owners of riverway vehicles to map out Covid response plans before resuming operations.
As for the road passenger transport services, the Mekong Delta city has reopened 48 routes connecting the city with 11 provinces such as Binh Dinh, Quang Ngai, Lam Dong and other provinces in the delta. Among them, 21 routes were allowed to operate at full capacity.
