Commuting is set to get easier in Dhaka, with the authorities announcing that one will soon be able to use the same pass to travel on the metro rail as well Nagar Paribahan buses.

“We are trying to provide Rapid Passes by June so passengers can travel by metro and bus using a single card. All countries in the world have this facility, and we also want to provide it,” Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Atiqul Islam told reporters on Tuesday.

“We have decided to launch (Nagar Paribahan) buses on routes 24 and 25 to serve metro rail passengers. They can get off a bus and get on the metro rail or disembark a metro train and go aboard a bus.” 

Fifty green-coloured buses would operate on the two routes initially, the mayor added.
