Low-floor buses will be used making it easier for passengers to carry their luggage, said the department.
The first route planned to open is non-subsidized starting from Ben Thanh Market. There will have 72 trips a day and buses will depart from stations every 15-25 minutes.
At present, HCMC has only one bus route to the airport from Trung Son residential area in Binh Chanh district with a capacity of 100 trips a day.
In addition, the department said it would build a tramcar system project to transport passengers on less than 10 kilometer routes, from the airport to surrounding areas, to catch buses and taxi cabs.
