Kathmandu, July 5

Long-route vehicles leaving and entering Kathmandu Valley will now be allowed to operate only from Gongabu Bus Park and Old Bus Park.

The decision to this effect was taken by a meeting held under the chairmanship of Director General of the Department of Transport Management Rup Narayan Bhattarai.

The meeting was attended by chiefs of subordinate bodies under the department as well as the chief of Metropolitan Traffic Police Division.

The new rule is aimed at streamlining transportation system in Kathmandu Valley as many long route vehicles are found haphazardly picking and dropping passengers, shared MPTD Chief DIG Mingmar Lama.

According to the decision, the buses entering the Valley from Kalanki will directly go to New Bus Park and exit from the same bus park. Those vehicles not abiding by this regulation would be brought to book with effect from July 16, said DIG Lama.

“The department will also review the capacity of these bus parks and seek alternatives if need be, added DIG Lama.

The meeting also decided to take action against those parking their vehicles in the green zone across the Ring Road from July 9.
