Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said travelling will be much easier and comfortable on this Eid. 

He made the statement at a meeting on special service of Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) held in Dhaka on Sunday.

Quader said: “I have stopped the piling work of Gazipur highway till Eid, so there might be some inconvenience. Otherwise, all other roads are functional.

”I have returned to ensure safe travels. Moreover, technological changes are already being made on road transports under the leadership of our prime minister.”

The minister said: “More 271 buses will be added to BRTC before Eid and 480 out of 500 trucks have already arrived.”

“Other than the new ones, a total of 1,089 vehicles will be on the roads during this Eid.”

According to BRTC officials, out of the 1089 buses, 649 buses will operate from Dhaka and 390 from various districts and upazilas.

Besides, 50 buses will be on reserve for emergency services.

Quader said: “BRTC must never become bankrupt. People, who are in charge, should take better care of the damage done to the vehicles. 

“More new buses cannot resolve the problems if rules are not followed.”

The minister also said: “There have been complaints about BRTC charging more during Eid, which must be resolved as it is a public service.” 

BRTC Chairman, Farid Ahmed Bhuiyan said: “BRTC has started selling tickets from May 20 and special services will start from May 27.”
