HCMC – HCMC is inviting tenders for the operation of 17 non-subsidized bus lines that will connect to Metro Line No. 1.

The HCMC Management Center of Public Transport has categorized the 17 bus lines into four packages. The contracts will be valid from July 1, 2024 to June 30, 2026.

This bidding aligns with the city’s investment policy to enhance accessibility and connectivity of public transportation with the stations of Metro Line No. 1, which is expected to be put into commercial service in July this year.

The city plans to develop technical infrastructure to facilitate passenger transportation between bus stops and the 11 stations of the metro line between Ben Thanh Market in District 1 and Suoi Tien Theme Park in Thu Duc City. This development requires over VND93 billion, funded by the local budget.

Metro Line No. 1 is now 97.5% complete.
