HCMC – The HCMC Management Center of Public Transport has proposed the municipal Department of Transport allow the resumption of eight subsidized bus routes passing through coach stations and hospitals in the city from October 25.
Specifically, five bus routes Nos. 14, 20, 27, 29 and 141 will offer 60 trips per day, while bus routes Nos. 65, 74 and 79 will operate 54 trips per day, the local media reported.
Bus route No. 74 will operate from 4:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Cu Chi Station and from 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the An Suong Station. The other buses will operate from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m.
A representative of the HCMC Management Center of Public Transport said the center would continue proposing resuming other bus routes based on the situation and demand in the areas concerned.
On October 5, the city resumed four bus routes in Can Gio District, including routes Nos. 77, 90, 127 and 128. After 15 days, the number of commuters on these routes remained low, following concerns over the pandemic transmission.
