100 buses to run on Ghatarchar-Kachpur route: Taposh

Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh today said that 100 buses would run under a single company on the proposed Kanchpur Bridge-Ghatarchar pilot route in Dhaka.

He told reporters after the 19th meeting of the Bus Route Rationalization Committee at Buriganga Hall of Nagar Bhaban on Sunday. 

DSCC Mayor Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh said public transport in Dhaka would be brought back to a discipline. We wanted to launch a new route bus from December 1 on the occasion of the golden jubilee of independence and Mujib Year. But they (bus owners) did not keep their words. So we stumbled. However, BRTC 100 buses will run in December to overcome hundreds of adversities and restore discipline on road. 

He added that 1,600 buses are being operated in the capital without licenses. We will take strict action against unlicensed buses. If any bus is found without a route permit will be destroyed.
