HCMC - The HCMC Public Transport Management Center has announced the suspension of 18 more bus routes in the city starting today, June 8, due to the complicated development of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Among the suspended routes, many often transport students to schools and residents to local wet markets, reported Tuoi Tre newspaper.
Besides this, the remaining 56 subsidized routes will remain operational, as they operate along the main streets, ring roads or through industrial and export processing zones.
Earlier, due to the impact of the fourth coronavirus wave, the city had ceased the operation of various bus routes starting from May 29. Moreover, all buses passing through Go Vap District temporarily stopped offering services from May 31 to June 14.
Further, most of the bus routes linking the city with neighboring provinces such as Long An, Dong Nai and Binh Duong are also subject to the suspension to cushion the spread of the deadly virus.
As of this afternoon, the city had reported 447 locally-infected cases in the latest wave which started from April 27. It currently ranks third in the country by the number of domestic cases.
