It is expected that Mien Tay (Eastern) Bus Station will receive more than 800,000 passengers, equivalent to the Tet holiday last year.

The owners of passenger vehicles at the Western Bus Station will surcharge no more than 40 percent of the fare only for six days, including four days before Tet and two days after Tet.
