NA begins free public transport in Kathmandu

KATHMANDU: The Nepal Army (NA) has begun free transport service for the commuters in Kathmandu Valley in view of the difficulty in mobility owing to the fuel shortage.

The first route extends from New Baneshwor to Ratnapark through Koteshwor, Ekantakuna, Kalimati, Tripureshwor and Ratnapark while the next one makes a round trip from Bhadrakali and covers areas like Jamal, Lainchaur, Narayan Gopal Chok, Balaju, Sohrakhutte and Maitighar.

Similarly, another bus will run from Maitighat to Tripureshwor, Kalimati, Kalanki, Swayambhu, Tahachal, Teku and Thapathali.

The fourth bus will begin its journey from Maithighar and ply on Baneshwor-Tinkune- Gaushala-Narayan Gopal Chowk-Lainchaur road, stopping at Kantipath.
