HCMC – The HCMC Management Center of Public Transport plans to add commuter bus trips on certain routes to meet the rising demand during the New Year holiday.
The additional bus trips will be operational from December 31, 2022 until January 2, 2023. Some 46 more trips will be scheduled a day.
The routes that will have a higher frequency are Route No. 77, which links Dong Hoa and Can Thanh in the outlying district of Can Gio, Route No. 90, which connects Can Thanh and the Binh Khanh ferry terminal, and Route No. 61-3 between HCMC’s An Suong Station and Thu Dau Mot Station in neighboring Binh Duong Province.
The center will halt running buses that cater specifically to students, namely Routes No. 50, 52 and 86, due to a drop in commuters during the holiday. The frequency of routes No. 55 and 56 will be reduced by 10 to 20 trips daily.
