Trial run of Dhaka-Kathmandu bus service kicks off
A bus service on a Bangladesh-India-Nepal route on trial basis has been flagged off here on Monday. Two buses carrying 25 Bangladeshis, 12 Indian and six Nepali representatives, led by Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) Chairman Fariduddin, started their journey from Kamalapur BRTC international depot in the morning. The buses will reach Kathmandu, Nepal via India on April 26. A protocol over the new bus service will be signed among the three countries, Fariduddin said. “We expect that after the protocol agreement, commercial bus service will start within two-three months,” said BRTC the chairman. If this trial run proves successful Bangladeshis, eager to avoid the stresses and expense of flying, will soon be able to travel to Nepal by road.

When fully implemented, the Bangladesh-Bhutan-India-Nepal (BBIN) motor vehicles agreement will open a new horizon for travelers between the member countries. Personal and commercial vehicles including passenger buses will travel between Dhaka and Kathmandu through Banglabandha and Phulbari borders of Bangladesh and India, and through Panir Tangki and Kakarbhitta borders of India and Nepal. Bangladeshi travelers will be able to reach Nepal by road after taking a transit visa from India. However, after full implementation of the BBIN agreement, they would not be required to change vehicles during the multiple border crossings.
