Vietnamese transport firm Phuong Trang (FUTA) has completed all preparations for the inauguration of a new shuttle bus service carrying passengers between Tan Son Nhat International Airport and a bus station in the downtown District 1, according to general director Dao Viet Anh.

Anh said on Saturday that the service, or bus route 109, will be put into operation on September 12 and is expected to help improve the crowded traffic situation at Tan Son Nhat.

Passengers can use the service to travel from Tan Son Nhat to the Saigon Bus Station in District 1 and vice versa from 5:45 am to 11:40 pm every day.

The buses will pick up and drop off passengers at the B17 to B20 pillars before the domestic terminal and at the area opposite the exit hall of the international terminal.

From Tan Son Nhat, the buses take passengers through Truong Son Street, Tran Quoc Hoan Street, Hoang Van Thu Street, Nguyen Van Troi Street, Nam Ky Khoi Nghia Street, Ham Nghi Street, and Le Lai Street before reaching the Saigon Bus Station.

On the other way around, the itinerary includes the Saigon Bus Station, Pham Ngu Lao Street, Yersin Street, Tran Hung Dao Street, Ham Nghi Street, Pasteur Street, Vo Thi Sau Street, Nam Ky Khoi Nghia Street, Nguyen Van Troi Street, Phan Dinh Giot Street, Truong Son Street, and an overpass to the international terminal of Tan Son Nhat.

The ticket price ranges from VND8,000 (US$0.34) to VND15,000 ($0.64) per passenger.

Upon its inauguration, the bus route will become the third shuttle bus service connecting Tan Son Nhat with Ho Chi Minh City's downtown area.
