Half fares in BRTC buses for students from Dec 1: Obaidul Quader

The government has decided to allow half fares in BRTC buses for students across the country from December 1.

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader disclosed this at a press briefing at his residence on Friday morning.

Students must show valid identity cards to get the facility.  But students will not get the facility in holidays, the minister said.

In response to the demand of students, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has decided to reduce fares by 50 per cent in BRTC buses, he said.
