HCMC – Mai Linh Group, a traditional taxi operator in Vietnam, on January 30 reintroduced its long-haul cab service between HCMC and the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho, around 170 kilometers from the southern metropolis, after a long period of suspension.

The group’s service, Mai Linh Express, has put 10 Limousine cabs of nine seats in operation on the route. These cars are equipped with smart TVs and WiFi, and passengers are served with snacks, drinks and wet wipes free of charge.

The first and last trips depart at 5 a.m. and 8 p.m. respectively on a daily basis, while the interval between two trips is one hour.

Their tickets are available at the Can Tho Central Bus Station in Cai Rang District and the Mien Tay Coach Station in Binh Tan District and cost from VND120,000 (US$5.1) to VND180,000 (US$7.7) each.

Mai Linh Express also offers the transport of passengers in groups on the route.

Mai Linh Group first introduced Mai Linh Express in 2005, which included a total of 550 vehicles travelling through 39 national highways across the country. The operator was faced with financial difficulties in 2012, so it was forced to scale down some long-distance transport routes for restructuring.
