The Hanoitimes - Hanoi Transportation Corporation (Transerco) has announced that the company will launch 14 new bus routes, including the pilot of three minibus lines in 2018.
These are 20-24 seat minibuses that can pick up passengers in narrow streets so that they can easily access the public transportation system.
Transerco has recently submitted the proposed project to the municipal Department of Transport.
After receiving approval from the department, Transerco will start investment in the vehicles.
For the above-mentioned proposal, the Hanoi Department of Transport has assigned the Transport Management subdepartment to review and evaluate the feasibility, then it will propose to the Hanoi People's Committee to allow Transerco to pilot the project.
In 2017, Transerco opened 17 new bus lines, expanding the service area to all 30 districts in Hanoi and took the first BRT bus route into operation on schedule with stable, safe quality.
