Long-haul transport services resumeAs per a Cabinet decision earlier this week, long-route bus services, which had remained suspended for the last six months in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, started operation today.
Gongabu Buspark on Thursday was abuzz with commotion following the resumption of long-haul transport services that had remained suspended for the last six months in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
A Cabinet meeting earlier this week took a slew of decisions, including resuming domestic flights and long-haul public transport services from September 17. The government has decided to allow public transport and domestic planes, but only 50 percent of their seats should be occupied.
The move, however, has also raised concerns, especially given the authorities’ failure to strictly impose safety protocols and public’s negligence.
Regardless, vehicle operators were seen cleaning their vehicles while workers were also decontaminating the buspark area and vehicles.
