HCM City seeks to extend tourist bus life span

The HCMC Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism says it is going to submit a petition to the Ministry of Transport to increase the life-span of buses carrying visitors to 15-20 years from the current ten years.Nguyen Duc Chi, deputy director of the Travel Management Division under the city’s tourism department, said the operational period of tourist buses is a mere ten years as regulated in Decree 91/2009/ND-CP. Therefore, the department plans to propose the transport ministry increase the time for a longer period.The short period of utilizing tourist buses has made tourist agencies and transporters find it difficult to do business. It is because the fast depreciation has pushed up transport costs, raising tour prices and eroding industry players’ competitiveness as a result.In fact, tourist buses are still in good conditions to serve visitors after ten years of operation as long as they are given timely maintenance.Enterprises running large fleets such as Hoa Binh and Viet Travel have already reported the difficulty to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Chi said. As several other firms also complained about the same problem, it is rational to suggest revision now, he added.
