UNESCO World Heritage Site Hoi An ancient town in central Quang Nam province has recently launched six bus routes using battery-powered vehicles as part of its efforts to go green.

The first 30 buses are being used to transport commuters and tourists from the town’s inner reaches and public parks to destinations in the old quarter. In the first stage, the buses will connect stops along 14 streets, including the two top destinations of Cua Dai Beach and Thanh Ha Pottery Village. Tickets are from VND10,000 ($0.43) for trips of less than 4km to VND15,000 ($0.65) for trips of more than 4km. The buses can also be rented for weddings. More than 90 are expected to be used from late 2019 to 2022.

Earlier this year, Hoi An, in cooperation with the German Development Co-operation Agency (GIZ) and Health Bridge Canada, launched a pilot bicycle sharing program to encourage residents to move from petrol power to pedal power as an environmentally-friendly transport solution.
