The Hanoi Transport Corporation (Transerco) put into operation 15 European-standard buses on November 7.

The buses are being operated on route No 3 from Giap Bat station to Gia Lam station and have Mercedes engines which are up to European standards on exhaust fumes.

Transerco Director General Nguyen Hoang Trung said the vehicles feature a driver cabin, free wifi, and a modern GPS system.

With the buses’ arrival, the route is the first in the capital city to operate low-floor buses.

The same day, the Transerco replaced all buses on its route No 25 that runs from Giap Bat station to the second National Hospital of Tropical Disease in Dong Anh district. The route now uses new buses manufactured by Daewoo Vietnam.-VNA
