The central city of Da Nang has deployed its intra-city bus routes subsidy system for nearly two years. Despite big investment, the public transport method has not fully tapped its potential due to shortcomings.

Currently, the city has 14 active bus routes with 195 buses. Of the figures, intra-city bus routes have been newly invested for the last two years.

According to the public, these intra-city buses are modern, convenient, reasonably priced and they offer good service quality.

Da Nang has intensified promotion and dissemination programmes while introducing more preferential programmes for bus-riders. The locality plans to open more six subsidised bus routes.  

Each year, the city subsidises nearly 560,000 USD for these bus routes.-VNA
