HCMC – HCMC will launch a pilot program in the first quarter of this year, using 200 electric golf carts for passenger transport in some districts.

The trial phase, covering districts 1, 4, 5, and 6, will run until the end of next year. A designated parking area for electric golf carts will be established at September 23 Park, with daily operational hours from 6 a.m. to midnight.

These four-wheel vehicles capable of accommodating five to 14 passengers will be operated by individuals with a B2-level driver’s license. These drivers will also undergo professional training overseen by the Ministry of Transport.
