Con Dao 09, 10 cruise fares start to increase, applied from 29-9

On September 29, interviewed by the Phap Luat Newspaper of Ho Chi Minh City,Dinh Quang Dong, director of the Port Authority of Ben Do (Vung Tau - Con Dao-Vung Tau), said that the provincial People's Committee had made a decision and immediately applied the change in the fares Con Dao 09 ships, 10 periods of 2017-2019.

Accordingly, the price of transporting passengers and goods will not be supported by Ba Ria-Vung Tau province and will increase accordingly.Specifically, the bed price from 29-9 is 450,000 VND / ticket / person (up 300,000 VND compared with the old price); VND 533,000 (2018) and VND 700,000 (2019).With the seat type ticket price will be 300,000 VND / ticket / person (2017); VND 400,000 (2018) and VND 525,000 (2019).Children, people with merit for the revolution, people with disabilities, the elderly fare increased by 50,000-80,000 in the period 2017-2019.Pupils, students, cadres, civil servants and people having permanent residence in Con Dao increase the same price as children and people with merit.The freight rates will increase by VND130,000 / tonne / m3 to VND180,000 / tonne / m3

Mr Dong said that the new fare will be applied to the 09, 10 (instead of the previous one). The old price has been maintained for many years and has not been adjusted, although the district has proposed about 7-8 years.Ba Ria-Vung Tau province will subsidize about 70% of ticket price each year, the amount of 2016 is about 16 billion Dong. If the new price is applied, the subsidy amount will be reduced to about 6-7 billion Dong.By 2020, there will be no subsidy and the management board of Ben Dam port will change its form of operation and autonomy. At this time Con Dao 09, 10 has also expired inspection and has to suspend, new shipbuilding

I personally support the increase in fares, subsidies. This is needed to save the budget, raising the quality of service activities, to be fair to some companies involved in online socializing transport Vung Tau - Con Dao – Vung Tau.Nowadays, some companies bring ships to operate Vung Tau - Con Dao, which is very good, but because the price is not competitive with Con Dao 09 and 10, they are subsidized. Therefore, after some time these companies gained heavy losses.However, due to the application of new tariffs quite fast, many people do not know this information. We have posted a new message at the port for people to know and will notify to other units, " Mr.Dong added

In addition to the Con Dao 09 and 10 vessels of the Ben Dam Port Management Board participating in Vung Tau-Con Dao-Vung Tau expressway transport, there are also CQ-03 ships of Phuc Dai Loi Phuong Nam Service and Technical Joint Stock Company ( Ward 11, Vung Tau City).CQ-03 has a tonnage of 100 tons, the capacity of transporting 350 passengers, including 75 beds, the rest are seats. The average speed of about 12 knots / hour; Can sail in wind condition 6, level 7.Vung Tau - Con Dao and vice versa will take 7-9 hours. The boat runs four trips back and forth between Vung Tau - Con Dao.The ticket price is still higher than the price of Con Dao 09, 10 after adjustment. In addition, Joint Stock Company Superdong Kien Giang is also exploiting the Soc Trang-Con Dao route and consider the policy of investment to open more routes Vung Tau - Con Dao.
