Electric buses to come to HCMC

Following Hanoi’s lead, the southern hub may soon adopt electric bus services for its tourists under a recently-approved pilot project from the local People’s Committee. Though exact specifications for the program have yet to be fleshed out – operation times, vehicle sizes and other details must be submitted to city authorities before 10 November – HCMC’s Department of Transport is already deliberating whether to offer these eco-friendly vehicles as taxis or stick to a series of well-traveled routes around downtown HCMC.
