Riverbus aims to fully tap potential

Launched in 2017, Ho Chi Minh City was the first locality to offer river-bus services. However, the service has not yet reached its full potential as many commuters still use other modes of transport.

Out on the open water, passengers can escape the traffic and smog on the roads, and take the time to relax. The service has quickly attracted customers, especially during holidays, New Year and weekends.

With more than 80 percent of the passengers being tourists, the service has hit some shortcomings

By mid 2020, all nine routes of the river-bus service will be fully completed and open for service, striving to become a friendly and helpful mode of transport for local commuters.
