Yet Another Ride-Hailing App Launches in Hanoi, This Time for Buses

A new mobile app, named Vihago, launched in Hanoi on March 5. The service aims to connect passengers with transport operators and bus services.

According to VietnamNet, the service will be similar to apps like Grab, except that transport service providers will be able to set their own prices. Vihago will not make a commission on each sale. Instead, it will cost VND200,000 per month for companies to market their services on the app.

The app will be free for customers and will be available to anyone, so long as they have a smartphone.

According to Vihago’s Managing Director, Nguyen Tuan Vinh, passengers can use the app to find vehicles anywhere and at any time, which he argues will save time compared to calling transport operators or going to coach stations to book seats.

The new app follows numerous additions to Vietnam’s ride-hailing market, with newcomers such as Go-Viet, be, and the infamously named Aber all launching their own apps over the last year following Uber’s departure.
