The government has decided to allow public transport services to resume operations in city corporation areas from Wednesday as the country passes a week-long lockdown enforced to curb Coronavirus transmission.
Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Tuesday said they would be allowed to operate between 6am and 6pm.
Public transport services will operate in Dhaka, Chattogram, Gazipur, Narayanganj, Cumilla, Rajshahi, Khulna, Sylhet, Barishal, Rangpur and Mymensigh city corporation areas.
But they will have to leave half the seats empty, the minister said in a press statement.
