The Transport Ministry must tighten management over transport fees and carry out investigations ensuring that they operate under the state-managed market mechanism, he said.

At the conference Mr. Thang also asked authorized agencies and transport firms to have plans to meet travel need of residents in the coming Tet holidays, ensure traffic safety, and prevent coach operators from rocketing up the fare and raise difficulties for passengers.
