In order to overcome the difficulties for enterprises of waterway transport, the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transport decided to temporarily cut down 12 turns of the river bus route a day compared to normal schedule of 36 turns a day. 

Accordingly, the river bus route No.1, which is the first waterway route in Ho Chi Minh City starting from Bach Dang Wharf, District 1 through Thanh Da Canal to Linh Dong Ward, Thu Duc District, started operation in November 2017. 

Three river buses with 75 seats each are exploited every day.
