Construction of the new Mien Dong Bus Station, which is the country's largest bus station with investment of over VND4trillion ($174 million), started in April 2017. It was first scheduled to open at the beginning of 2018 but then had to be delayed several times due to various reasons, including the pandemic.

Covering 16 hectares in HCM City's District 9 and Binh Duong Province's Di An District, the new station is nearly three times larger than the old one.

The station is designed to serve about 21,000 passengers per day, with a total number of 1,200 buses. This will increase to 52,000 passengers and over 1,800 buses on peak days. It is expected to reduce traffic in the city centre, particularly in areas around the old station.

The new station will be connected with HCM City's Metro Line No 1 that will run between Ben Thanh Terminal in District 1 and Suoi Tien Terminal in District 9.

Other bus stations in HCM City include Mien Tay (Western) Bus Station in Binh Tan district, An Suong Bus Station in Hoc Mon district and Nga Tu Ga Bus Station in District 12.
