Due to the record increase in gasoline prices, many people have changed their means of transportation to work to save costs. According to our records, at 07:30 on March 14, at the Cat Linh – Ha Dong railway station, many people came to buy tickets to transfer at noon.
Most people have bought a monthly ticket, however, many people have recently changed their means of transportation for work after seeing record gasoline prices.

Mr. Nguyen Anh Ngoc said that previously his motorbike was only filled with 70,000 VND to fill the tank, but now the price of gasoline has increased, enough to pour 135,000, he immediately switched to the Cat Linh – Ha Dong train to go to work.
“My house is 20km from work. In the past, I personally did not pay much attention to the choice of means of transportation. I prefer to use a motorbike because of the flexibility and speed in moving. Every day I just ride the car. engine, fill up the gas and leave Just because the price of gasoline is still cheap but this time the gas rose too much, I switched to using public transportation, both saving costs and avoiding traffic jams. Master Truong Dai Phong said.
Like Mr. Phong, Ms. Huyen (office worker) shared: “If gasoline were as high as now, I would buy a monthly ticket to go by train to Cat Linh – Ha Dong to reduce expenses as much as possible. Right now, I spend 500,000 VND per month on petrol, but if I take the tram, it only costs 200,000 VND per month.”
The fact that Hanoi residents have opted for sky trains as their means of transportation during times of record gas prices has helped many people save quite a bit on travel costs instead of using private vehicles such as motorbikes, which is very convenient for those who have routes to work on rail lines.
