To create the map, the city People’s Committee has asked the Ministry of Transport to share data about all vehicles in the city so the city will set up IT applied measures for managing and regulating traffic.
Ngo Hai Duong, the head of the division, said last week the transport department’s existing digital map is simple since it only updates data about buses and traffic congestion and warnings about traffic jams.
Once the ministry provides the data about the city’s taxis, buses, trucks and other vehicles, they will be incorporated to complete the digital map. Once that is done, the public can use smart phones to check the city’s transport situation to choose the appropriate streets to avoid traffic jams.
