Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) will resume the air-conditioned (AC) circular bus service in Dhanmondi and Uttara route of the capital from October 1 to facilitate university students.
However, this service remained suspended for a long time due to the Covid pandemic and the closure of the universities.
As the schools and colleges reopened on Sunday and the universities will reopen soon, the Circular AC bus will be re-launched to cut traffic congestion and ease sufferings of city residents from October 1, BRTC said.
Chairman of the organisation (Additional Secretary) Tajul Islam confirmed the matter.
Earlier, on March 27, 2019, the BRTC has launched air-conditioned (AC) circular bus service on Azimpur-Newmarket-Dhanmondi in the capital while on May 27 Airport to Pragati Sarani route.
