Seniors over 75 get free bus tickets

The Department of Transport in Ho Chi Minh City yesterday said that it would give elder people free bus ticket as one part of the national action program for Vietnamese senior people in the period 2016-2020.

The department instructed related agencies to carry out the program as well as increase supervision to prevent discrimination over elder passengers and strict implementation of the program.

In addition, the Public Transportation Managing and Operation Center must instruct transportation companies to release the information of free bus tickets for elder people over 75. There will be harsh penalties on violation of the policy.
