Updated at Thursday, 15 Dec 2016, 17:18
Hanoi Department of Transport joins hands with Hanoi Transport and Services Corporation (Transerco) to create favorable conditions for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) operation, to ensure transport safety and convenience for passengers. The project is hoped to officially operate within the year. 

The pilot route is from Kim Ma Station in Ba Dinh District to Yen Nghia Station in Ha Dong District through Giang Vo, Lang Ha, Le Van Luong, Le Trong Tan, Tran Phu and Ba La streets. There are 21 bus stops on the 14.7 km route. Each bus has a capacity of 90 passengers. It is expected to take a passenger 30 minutes for the whole route.

The technical support project is expected to get underway between 2016 and 2020, including three components on integrated urban and transport planning, increased connectivity between other modes of transport and the BRT system, and improved capacity of relevant units. 

BRTs are painted with blue and white. The interior is quite modern when cockpit is separated by glass wall, soft cushion seat, plastic handrails, making passengers feel pretty clean and friendly.

The entire means of BRT operating on Kim Ma - Yen Nghia route has been handed over Transerco. Today, Transerco starts the process of BRT’s technical trial run without passenger, so that the People can feel comfortable when using BRT with careful preparation.

The followings are some images of BRT for technical tests:
