Accordingly, the Can Gio – Can Giuoc ferry has been invested under public-private partnership with its total investment of VND 56 billion including two ferry terminals, 2 thirty-tone ferries, 2 sixty-tone ferries and technical system at the two ferry terminal.

The ferry meets the travelling demand of automobiles up to 10 tons from National Route 50 (provinces of Long An, Tien Giang) to Can Gio district, Ho Chi Minh City and vice versa which would contribute to shorten the distance from 11 kilometers to 49 kilometers. 

At the same time, the ferry also would help enhance the regional links and ensure the national defense for the coastal areas of Ho Chi Minh City.

The People Committee of Can Gio District is the investor and the project has total investment of VND 15billion from the city budget.
