HCMC – The Rach Mieu ferry terminal, which connects the two Mekong Delta provinces of Ben Tre and Tien Giang, will resume operations tomorrow, November 19, after over four months of suspension to battle the spread of the Covid pandemic.
The temporary ferry terminal will remain open from 4.00 a.m. to 10.00 p.m. every day. Passengers can charter a ferry if they want to use the ferry service at a different timeframe, according to the Ben Tre center for ferry and bus station management.
Earlier on July 12, the ferry terminal suspended its operations to curb the spread of Covid, so residents of the two provinces had to travel via the Rach Mieu bridge to make it easier to control vehicles and people to/from the provinces.
The ferry terminal, located some 10 kilometers away from the bridge, was opened to traffic in January to ease the traffic congestion facing the Rach Mieu bridge, the local media reported.
