“District service buses will not be allowed to cross one district to another. Likewise, the city service buses will not be allowed to travel to other cities,” said Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader.

The minister said on a video-conference call with officials of Mymensingh Road Zone, BRTA and BRTC on Monday.
He also said that disinfectant will have to be sprayed in buses before departing the station.

“Besides drivers, assistants and passengers will have to follow the health guidelines properly and half of the seats will be left vacant,” said Obaidul Quader.

He also said a notification will be issued soon in this regard.
