The city tour bus will be running on the streets of Hanoi in for a trial run before investors decide whether or not it is viable to invest in more of these tourist buses. If the trial run is succesful, Hanoi Transerco will be ordering more double decker buses to use in the city center in the next two months. The open top is equipped with a convertible rooftop to cover passengers from the heat and rain notorious for the Southeast Asian country. Each of these buses costs around 7 to 9 billion VND.
