Ho Chi Minh City’s public transport authority has announced the resumption of eight more public bus routes, which are expected to appease travel demands following the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.

After surveying the demand public transport, as well as epidemic safety conditions, the Ho Chi Minh City Management Center of Public Transport has gained approval from the municipal Department of Transport to relaunch eight public bus itineraries, including routes No. 14, No. 20, No. 27, No. 29, No. 141, No. 65, No. 74, and No. 79, starting October 25.

All of these bus routes will operate every day from 5:00 am to 6:00 pm, except for No. 74, which has vehicles leaving Cu Chi Bus Terminus from 4:30 am to 5:30 pm and departing An Suong Bus Terminus between 5:30 am and 6:30 pm.

The Ho Chi Minh City Management Center of Public Transport will consider proposals for more routes to be relaunched based on customer demands and safety conditions, a representative of the center told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper.

On October 5, four bus routes in Can Gio District resumed operations, the first in Ho Chi Minh City to see a relaunch after COVID-19 restrictions shuttered all bus services in late June.

Ho Chi Minh City has been the hardest-hit locality in Vietnam since the beginning of the fourth virus wave on April 27, with more than 418,000 local infections and over 16,300 fatalities.
