HCMC – Saigon Railway Transport JSC (SRT) has suspended a number of train trips from HCMC to Nha Trang, Danang and Phan Thiet, which are popular destinations in the central region, due to a decline in the number of passengers.
SRT suspended the SE21/SE22 trains on the HCMC-Danang rail route, the SNT2/SNT1 trains on the HCMC-Nha Trang route and the SPT1/SPT2 on the HCMC-Phan Thiet route until July 15.
Passengers that want to travel to these three destinations can take their trips on the SE3/SE4 and SE7/SE8 trains that offer daily services on the Hanoi-HCMC route.
The passengers of suspended trains can return their tickets to the railway stations before the time of departure and will not be charged any fee.
Meanwhile, in the north, the Hanoi Railway Transport JSC will operate one more pair of trains—LP5 and LP6—on the Hanoi-Haiphong route starting from today, June 25, due to the high travel demand among passengers.
Passengers are required to make health declarations and wear masks during the trip, as well as limit traveling between carriages amid concerns over the pandemic.
Earlier, in mid-May, the local railway sector had to suspend passenger train services linking Hanoi with Haiphong, Lao Cai and Dong Dang due to a surge in domestic infections in Hanoi. Only freight trains remained operational.
