Bearing the slogan, “A journey of knowledge and future”, the bus runs between District 8’s station and Thu Duc University Village, a route familiar to many local students. It serves as a mini library with wooden shelves, tables, and chairs for passengers.
Along with the bus, the “Knowledge bus stop” and the city’s first Electronic Information Display at a bus stop were launched, which provide information on the books and activities available at the Book Street and the city’s bus lines.
Speaking at the event, Deputy Director of the municipal Transport Department Vo Khanh Hung said in the coming time, the department will build an area in the Book Street to raise children’s awareness about traffic safety.
On this occasion, Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transportation signed a cooperation agreement with Ho Chi Minh City Book Street Company Limited to better serve the people and contribute to the development of Ho Chi Minh City as a high quality, civilized, and modern metropolis.
