From today, the bus will run with full passengers and the train will run with half passengers

Restrictions on coronavirus infections have been in effect since last Thursday. According to the notification, in order to comply with the hygiene rules in public transport, public transport will be run with half of the number of seats from today. However, the bus will run with full passengers. The train will run with half the passengers. The launch has not been decided yet. As a result, passengers are being transported on the launch as before.

The government initially instructed buses to carry half of the total seats. That decision was changed in the wake of a dispute between transport owners. According to the new BRTA guidelines, buses will carry passengers in all seats. However, no passenger can be picked up while standing on the bus. And of course hygiene must be obeyed. The BRTA has verbally instructed the bus owners.

Meanwhile, the passenger train will carry half of the seats. About 25 per cent of the tickets for 50 per cent of the train seats will be sold online and 25 per cent at the ticket counter. Regarding hygiene, the railways have decided that passengers will not be allowed to enter the station without masks. The railways will also provide catering services and night bedding on intercity trains in accordance with the prevailing rules and strict hygiene rules.

On the other hand, no specific instructions have been issued yet on how to transport passengers on the launch. As a result, they are carrying passengers as before. However, there are instructions to abide by the rules of hygiene when carrying passengers. The Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) has said that the launch will be carried out in accordance with the new instructions from the ministry.
