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.

“The information boards also make it easier for me and other students to travel.”

Following the direction of the municipal Department of Transport, the Public Transport Management Center has been repairing and renovating local bus stops to improve the quality of bus services, a representative of the management center stated.

The center has revamped about 410 bus stops and 1,900 bus stop spots and is expected to renovate some 240 bus stops and 1,170 bus stop spots in the coming time.

It will also add and repair restrooms at 13 bus stops to better service quality and meet the essential needs of bus-goers.
