MNA National Desk: Private bus operators will sell advance bus tickets from Wednesday (May 30) for the home-goers ahead of the Eid-ul-Fitr, reported news agency.
Bangladesh Bus-Truck Owners’ Association Chairman and Shohagh Paribahan Managing Director Md Faruk Talukder Sohel confirmed the matter Sunday (May 27).
The selling of Air Conditioned buses, however, has started. Earlier on Thursday, Bangladesh Railway announced to begin sale of advance train tickets ahead of the Eid-ul-Fitr from June 1.
Every year, tens of thousands of people leave the capital Dhaka to celebrate Eid with near and dear ones at their village homes. But their journey often turns bitter largely due to traffic jam, overcharging of tickets and delays in bus and train schedule.
