Mayur Yatayat Company resumed its bus services from today in the Kathmandu valley amidst the fear of COVID-19 outbreak. The decision of Mayur Yatayat has come as a relief to the commuters a time when other public transportation entrepreneurs were denying to operate the services citing fear of coronavirus infection.
The company said that three buses were brought into operation in the capital from today. According to company’s proprietor Deepak Bhandari, the buses will run along the Kathmandu-Banepa section and Ring Road in Kathmandu valley. The company has promised to expand its service very soon. The halt of the service for more than three months due to the lockdown has adversely affected public, workers and entrepreneurs. The government on Wednesday had decided to resume the public transportation services by adopting the precaution measures but most of the public transportation entrepreneurs have denied it. Instead, the entrepreneurs have put forth different demands before the government.
