Nagar Paribahan buses on the 24 and 25 number routes will run in coordination with the metro rail MRT pass, said Dhaka South City Corporation Mayor Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh.

The mayor said this while addressing the 26th meeting of the Bus Route Rationalization Committee at the head office of Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) on Tuesday (February 7).

Mayor Taposh said already MRT has been launched. So, we have decided to start launch buses on two new routes in coordination with the MRT. We have discussed the issue in details in today’s meeting.

In reply to a question he said, "We have noticed some irregularities. In particular, we are noticing a trend of boarding the bus without buying a ticket. That will not be tolerated in Dhaka Nagar Paribahan."

The two are- 

Route 24: Ghatarchar - Bosila - Mohammadpur Bus Stand - Shishu Mela - Agargaon – Kalshi via Mirpur 10 Flyover to Airport - Jasimuddin Abdullahpur.

Route 25: Ghatarchar- Basila- Mohammadpur bus stand- Asadgate- Manik Mia Avenue via Khamarbari via Bijoy Soroni to Jahangir Gate- Shaheen School- Mahakhali (from underneath the flyover)- Kakoli- Regency via Banani Flyover - Airport- Jasimuddin- Abdullahpur.
