News Desk:
Dhaka Nagar Paribahan bus service — from Ghatarchar to Kanchpur under one authority — was formally launched today in the capital with an effort to restore discipline in public transport on the
city streets.

On the route, 50 brand new, green-coloured buses will run on a trial
basis.

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader inaugurated the bus
service virtually from the secretariat this afternoon.

Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor
Taposh presided over the programme organized in the city’s Mohammadpur Bus
Stand.

“The people will not get the benefit of the development which is being
done by the incumbent government, if we fail to restore discipline on the
street,” said Quader, also general secretary of Awami League while
inaugurating the bus service that has been introduced as part of the
government’s bus route rationalisation.

The minister also sought cooperation from the workers and transport
owners to make the initiative successful.
