Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transport is preparing to launch a bus route connecting Tan Son Nhat Airport to Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province before Tet Holiday.
This is the first shuttle bus connecting Tan Son Nhat Airport with other bus stations in other provinces. The new bus will go into operation in late January and is not subsidised.
The route is 105km long and the bus will work from 12 am to 11.30 pm. The travel time is estimated to be around 150 minutes. Passengers will have to pay VND80,000 (USD3.45) for half of the route and VND160,000 if they want to go further. The bus will go through HCM City-Long Thanh-Dau Giay route to save travel time.
The bus will have wifi and screens on the back of the seats for passengers’ entertainment during the three-hour trip. Avi Go Company, the project’s investor, said they would also help passengers with check-in procedures.
The police in HCM City were asked to work closely with other agencies in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province to ensure traffic safety.
HCM City has opened five shuttle bus routes from Tan Son Nhat Airport to local inter-province bus stations in the city. HCM City Department of Transport said they also wanted to open more shuttle buses to other provinces including Binh Duong and Dong Nai.
