A private company will invest and operate the two routes on Saigon River for five years, with a total price tag of nearly 11.5 million USD, District 7 authorities proposed.

Route No. 3 route will run 13 kilometers from Bach Dang Wharf to Mui Den Do with a total time of 56 minutes. There will be 11 stations. A boat will have 50 seats.

Route No. 4 will run over 13 kilometers from Bach Dang Wharf to the Phu My Hung urban area. A boat will have 40 seats.

Authorities of District 7 said both routes would help take advantage of the waterways as the city strives to recover its economy following the fourth Covid-19 wave.

River buses are part of the city’s efforts to reduce traffic congestion./.
