Nagar Paribahan service resumed in Khulna city Monday morning after remaining suspended for over two and a half years.

The Nagar Paribahan service will ply between Khulna city’s Phultala and Rupsha Ghat.

Passengers traveling on this route regularly are relieved now as they will not have to rely on human haulers and CNG-run autorickshaws and spend Tk60-70 as fares.

Resumption of Nagar Paribahan service has also opened up new avenues of income generation for transport workers of the area, said passengers and drivers.

The fare for traveling from Phultala to Rupsha Ghat by Nagar Paribahan has been fixed at Tk30. Up to Daulatdia, the fare for students has been fixed at Tk10 while for general passengers the fare is Tk15.

Low and middle income people and students had to suffer a lot due to the absence of Nagar Paribahan. 

Exorbitant fares, rough behaviour of the human hauler and auto-rickshaw drivers, traffic jam and reckless driving made the lives of Khulna city residents miserable.

All these problems will be over now due to the re-launch of Nagar Paribahan service, they hoped.
