HCMC - The Hanoi Railway Transport JSC (Haraco) has decided to suspend the operations of the YB3/YB4 trains on the Hanoi-Yen Bai route and the HP1/LP2 trains on the Hanoi-Haiphong route starting from May 8, due to the impact of the latest Covid-19 resurgence in Vietnam.
Before the suspension, the YB3/YB4 and the HP1/LP2 trains were only operational on weekends. The YB3 train departs from Hanoi station on Saturdays and the YB4 starts at the Yen Bai station on Sundays. The HP1 departs from the Hanoi station and the LP2 at the Haiphong station, reported VietnamPlus.
Passengers who booked tickets for these trains can return them to railway stations before the time of departure and will not be charged any fee, a representative of Haraco said.
Passengers boarding trains departing from other provinces to Haiphong City were informed that the northern city had started applying quarantine measures such as quarantining at concentrated quarantine centers, home-quarantining, health declarations and medical monitoring for people arriving from virus-hit localities, starting from May 4.
On the Hanoi-Haiphong route, the LP3, LP5, LP6, LP8 trains are still operational daily.
Earlier, the provincial government of Yen Bai on May 3 issued a dispatch ordering the implementation of social distancing in public places starting from the same day to combat Covid-19.
