Hanoi City will offer free commuter bus service to domestic and international journalists covering the summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un from today, February 25, until March 2, Nguoi Lao Dong newspaper reported.

To contribute to ensuring quick news coverage of the upcoming second summit in Hanoi City between February 27 and 28, the chair of the Hanoi government has directed public transport firms to create the most favourable conditions for the travelling reporters.

In line with the municipal chair’s directive, the Hanoi Public Transport Management and Operation centre has written to commuter bus service providers in the city proposing they issue free bus passes for journalists who hold press credentials for the summit. The programme is expected to wrap up on March 2.

In addition, the municipal Department of Transport has asked the public transport firms to refurbish their vehicles and monitor the behavior of bus drivers and ticket conductors as well as security on buses to build a friendly image.

In addition, the firms are required to provide these customers with all the information they need and to introduce Vietnam’s economy, tourism, diplomatic policies and achievements.

Doan Anh Ngoc, a representative from Hanoi Transport and Services Corporation (Transerco), said that double-decker city tours will be subject to a road adjustment, with an additional stop at the venue at 91 Tran Hung Dao Street, Hoan Kiem District, during the projected period.
