Hanoi People’s Committee has asked Hoan Kiem district leaders to implement the pilot project to use electric buses to serve passengers who travel around Hoan Kiem Lake and old quarter streets.

Accordingly, the committee suggested that electric buses should be put into operation as early as July this year.

The electric buses, powered by batteries, will have five to 12 seats. Estimated bus fare is from VND 10,000 to VND 30,000.

According to the plan, there will be two electric bus routes with 15 bus stops to serve travelers who want to visit the old quarters.
