Passenger bus service has returned to normalcy with introduction of previous fare on Tuesday, after three months of interregnum.
Commuters are relieved of 60 percent extra fare which was imposed by the government on condition of reducing crowd and maintaining social distancing.
As the offices and business activities have gone into full operation, the government decided to reconsidered transport fare in aid of people who are already hard hit by pandemic impasse.
In the changing situation, passengers were seen boarding city services and highway coaches with previous fares, but the buses were jam-packed.
The first day of transport movement was marked by a slack in social distancing on the part of transport workers and passengers.
Many were found to be unmasked while buses were devoid of any sanitising items.
On Saturday, Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) issued a notification as to enforcement of previous fares prohibiting additional passengers indeed.
