Major bus stations in HCM City improve services

The Mien Dong Bus Station, located on Dinh Bo Linh Street in Binh Thanh District, has remained one of the most prominent stations in HCM City with constant service improvement.

In November 2018, the Mien Dong Bus Station upgraded the wifi network to serve 20,000 users from the previous 600, and installed survey devices at numerous spots to gather feedback from passengers.

A programme on noise minimisation was carried out on all vehicles operating at Mien Dong Bus Station, Nguyen Cao Phu, station representative, said, adding that noise from vehicles’ horns fell by 95 per cent after the programme.

At the beginning of 2019, Mien Dong Bus Station began using modern management software in an effort to efficiently manage vehicles passing in and out of the station.

The programme “Modern Bus Station”, in which a chip is attached to vehicles operating on fixed routes, shortens the waiting time of these vehicles at the main gate. This has been especially useful during peak periods such as the Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday when the number of vehicles entering and leaving the station is higher than usual.

In July 2019, the Mien Dong Bus Station installed an automatic car washer system with advanced technology for vehicles entering gate No 1. In the following month, the station began encouraging locals to limit the use of plastic and replace plastic water bottles with hot-and-cold bottles and paper cups.

Phu said the station would further improve its service. Promoting the use of clean energy such as solar energy has been the station’s main focus. 

 

Meanwhile, the station is preparing to launch an automatic ticketing system that provides passengers with an online platform to purchase tickets in advance.

Nga Tu Ga Bus Station is also using a management system for vehicle control and ticket sales, following the ISO 9001: 2008 standard.

Prior to carrying out this programme, Nga Tu Ga Bus Station managed these processes manually.

“We decided to take advantage of modern software and information technology to control the flow of vehicles,” a representative of the Nga Tu Ga Bus Station said.

The ISO 9001: 2008 management system has made everything easier, and there is no longer a mismatch between the number of passengers buying tickets and the actual number of passengers on the bus. 

Recently, the Saigon Transportation Mechanical Corporation (SAMCO) organised an event on Mien Tay Bus Station’s expansion of a parking garage for two-wheeled vehicles.

The project has a total construction area of nearly 2,000 square metres, worth nearly VND8.2 billion. It aims to improve the quality of passenger service at Mien Tay Bus Station and meet parking needs, which is in line with the master plan for the bus station.  VNS
