Electric buses to operate in Hanoi starting November

The Hanoi Department of Transport has proposed three electric bus lines start running from November.

According to plan, three lines would be introduced within 2021, and six more in 2022.

The lines to run by the end of 2021 would be the My Dinh (Ham Nghi)-Ocean Park, Long Bien-Cau Giay-Smart City and My Dinh Station-Ocean Park lines. The subsidized costs for the three lines this year would be over VND9 billion ($395,474), the department stated.

For the first quarter of 2022, two new lines would begin operation: the Hao Nam-Ocean Park Urban Area and Giap Bat Station-Ocean Park lines. Four other lines would begin operation in the second quarter: the Long Bien-Cua Nam-Smart City, Hanoi joint administrative entities on Vo Chi Cong Street-Times City, Times City-Ho Tay Water Park and the Smart City-Vincom Long Bien lines.

The Hanoi transport department proposes pricing to be the same as for public busses using clean fuel (compressed natural gases) as approved by the municipal People's Committee. Such a pricing scheme would be temporarily applied for 12 months starting the moment the bus lines enter use.
