A plan to operate electric cars in downtown HCM City especially targeted at tourists was presented by the Department of Transport at a meeting on 15 July.
The two terminals will be the HCM City Zoo and 23 September Park with 27 stops along the way. Ten 12-seat electric cars will operate for eight to 18 hours a day, departing in 10-minute intervals.
Tickets for distances involving less than 15 stops will cost VND6,000 (28 US cents), while for longer distances it will be VND10,000.
Passengers can also buy tickets costing VND40,000 for unlimited use for less than four hours and VND120,000 for the full day.
