BRTA had a successful meeting with Green Dhaka, Shatabdi & Dhaka Chaka bus owners. All three buses have applauded the initiative and confirmed to remove advertisements from window panels to keep the inside of the bus visible to everyone on the road.
The floating parliament will be in charge of the removal. BRTA has also fined the bus owners 10,000 BDT in cash as this approach of covering window panels violates the regulations of new transportation law in 2018.
Women’s safety on the bus is a real concern in this country. We all hope to see them follow-through with this decision as soon as possible.
