Update: 07:45 | 10/03/2019

Vietnam Railways (VNR) will install wireless Internet on all North-South trains in 2019 in a bid to improve its service quality.

In addition, VNR plans to send mobile text messages to its customers in case of any incident so that passengers can take the initiative in traveling.

Head of VNR's member council, Vu Anh Minh, said that the VNR has carried out pilot wifi service on some of its trains since 2015 and it is working with Mobifone and Viettel to provide the service on all North-South trains this year.

The VNR has set a target of increasing its output by 8% and its revenue by 7% in 2019.

"VNR is making every effort to lower transport costs and when a serious incident occurs, it will make a plan to transship and clear the railway as soon as possible," Minh affirmed.

The VNR has set a target of increasing its output by 8% and its revenue by 7% in 2019 despite the increasing competition from low-cost airlines and road, sea and waterway transport.

The railway is expected to gradually replace outdated and small-sized wagons and trains with a total cost of VND4.7 trillion (US$202.1 million) by 2020, in an attempt to enhance its quality, efficiency and competitiveness.
