Kathmandu, September 24
After the government agreed to increase fare of public transportation, public bus entrepreneurs have decided to open advance ticket booking for upcoming Dashain festival from Tuesday.
Earlier, the transporters had decided to open the booking from Saturday, but they withdrew the decision after the government did not heed their demand for fare hike.
On Saturday evening, the government agreed to increase the transport fare by 10 per cent. Consequently, a meeting of the Federation of Nepalese National Transport Entrepreneurs, made the decision to open the booking from tomorrow, according to the organisation’s General Secretary Saroj Sitaula.
More than half population of Kathmandu leave the Kathmandu Valley to their home districts to celebrate the 15-day festival.
