Accordingly, both drivers of buses, taxis and app-based taxis and passengers were aware of health protection and complied with pandemic prevention and control requirements.

As for taxi and app-based taxis, enterprises are allowed to re-operate around 20 to 30 percent of their capacity. Besides, apps-based under-nine-seat cars are permitted to resume a maximum of ten percent on the total number of managed vehicles.

Regarding under-nine-seat cars, they will be served at some tourism sites.

Based on the proposals of transportation enterprises, the City Department of Transport will grant the QR Code for each registered vehicle.
