Hanoi licencing tourist cyclos halted
Licencing tourist cyclos, to avoid causing traffic jams, only 300 tourist cyclos are licenced to run in Hanoi and municipal authorities will not licence any more, said Director of the Hanoi Department of Tourism Tran Huu Binh.
According to Mr Binh, cyclos contribute to traffic jams in the capital city. Besides restricting the number of cyclos, tourist cyclos must run in order, around 50m between one group and another, each group consisting of five cyclos.
Notably, Hanoi tourist cyclos are not allowed to operate at peak hours. Hanoi currently has four cyclo operating companies.“We must balance interests. We consider cyclos as a cultural characteristic of Hanoi, which is a vehicle to serve tourists, but the use of cyclos must not affect traffic,” said Mr Binh. In May, Hanoi police are intensifying inspections and fining cyclos for violations such as lacking licences, using false number plates, and running at peak hours.
