Bashabo-Tantibazar bus service required

THE southeast part of Dhaka city that includes Bashabo, Goran, Nandipara, Kadamtala, Sabujbag, Rajarbag etc., do not have affordable and comfortable bus service. The inhabitants have been suffering a lot due to lack of affordable means of transport. Rickshaws have been barred from plying on many busy roads. Compressed natural gas-run auto-rickshaws are neither easily available nor affordable. Taxi-cab service is out of reach for common people. The Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) should come forward to reduce the sufferings of millions of inhabitants of the region.

Print media reported recently that the BRTC would buy 600 buses with Indian credit to fulfil people's expectations. The BRTC can introduce a bus service from Bashabo to Tantibazar via Bashabo-Shajahanpur flyover, Rajarbag Police Hospital, Purana Paltan, Zero Point, Gulistan and Bangsal. Millions of people of the southeast part of Dhaka metropolis will benefit if a bus service is introduced by the BRTC on the above-mentioned route. The proposed bus service will open up a better communication link with the wholesale market area. Every five minutes a bus should touch the stoppages and there will be no shortage of passengers for the proposed service.

I would like to request the BRTC authority to press into service buses on the above route. This will go a long way to reducing the sufferings of the residents of Bashabo, Goran, Madartak, Banasrieast, Nandipara, Shekhejaiga, Kadamtala, Rajarbag, Sabujbag and adjoining areas.
