The Hue-Danang bus route was officially launched on January 1 at Hue Southern Station.
The route connects Hue Southern Station and Danang Central station. Hue City will manage 29 buses with the logo of Hue bus on the route. The vehicles will depart from Hue Southern Station every day from 5 am to 7 pm. The final service leaves Danang Central Station at 12:14 pm. Danang City will run 29 buses on the route.
An app will be available to the public to help provide information about the service. The two cities will agree on operational regulations. There will be a bus every 15 minutes. The ticket price for the whole route is VND70,000 (USD3) per passenger and the ticket prices for each section are VND30,000 to VND50,000 per passenger.
The route has a total of 32 stops including six stops in Huong Thuy Commune and 20 stops in Phu Loc District.
All buses have surveillance cameras to send live feeds to the management centre of the Road Directorate.
"We'll run in accordance with the approved schedule and will replace broken buses in time. We'll follow all requirements for public buses as well as regulations about ticket management and monitoring," said Nguyen Van Long, chairman of Thua Thien-Hue Automobile Transportation Association.
It is hoped that the new bus route will help expand the public transport network and limit personal vehicles between Hue and Danang. Dtinews
