In particular, the Hanoi Department of Transport was asked to develop the bus network, concurrently study expanding bus operations, encourage the use of public transport among the locals and attempt to launch electric buses in the coming period, reported news site VietnamPlus.

The city will also reorganize traffic activities, giving priority to buses traveling through key traffic points or streets that ban cars.

Also, large modes of public transport such as bus-rapid-transit units and the urban railway system will be prioritized.

During 2019, an additional 20 bus routes are expected to be launched and the figure will double next year. The new routes will link to the suburbs, new urban areas, shopping malls and tourist attractions.

 

Further, the city will seek ways to improve public transport services, collect fees from vehicles that travel into congestion-prone areas and gradually restrict motorcycles from entering inner-city districts in 2030 to increase the number of public transport users. SGT
