Hundreds of bus stops in Ho Chi Minh City have been renovated in a bid to improve service quality and contributes to improving the city's public transport system.
Bus stops along many routes in the southern metropolis have been given a facelift, according to the observation of Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reporters.
Many of these facilities previously suffered serious deterioration, some of which were even turned into makeshift garbage dump.
The new bus stops are equipped with information boards with details about bus routes, making it much more convenient for passengers.
“I believe the renovation and replacement of bus stops in the city will help raise awareness about environmental protection and minimize littering,” Nguyen Hoang, a student at the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Education.
