The People’s Committees of Kien Giang and Quang Nam bear the responsibility for the pilot project and report outcomes after six months of trial. 

The Ministry of Transport (MoT) and the Ministry of Public Security were asked to review and asses the usage of tramcars in May.

The MoT also reported that so far ten localities have conducted the pilot tramcar project for tourism development.

Initial outcomes showed that the public vehicle is safe, civilized, and convenient for tourism activities and environmentally friendly.

Currently, about 30 enterprises and inpiduals are operating 1,086 tramcars in the 10 provinces and cities namely Ha Noi, Nghe An, Thanh Hoa, Quang Binh, Hai Phong, Da Nang, Lao Cai, Thua Thien-Hue, Khanh Hoa and Ba Ria-Vung Tau./.
