Bhojpur-Kathmandu minibus service flagged off

BHOJPUR: A direct transport service between Bhojpur and Kathmandu was flagged off today.

The Chomolungma Transport Pvt Ltd launched the Bhojpur-Kathmandu microbus service. The transport company plans to field a fleet of six minibuses, each with 18 seats. It is currently operating two microbuses a day due to disruptive road conditions.

The bus fare from Bhojpur to Kathmandu via Dharan and Sindhuli-Bardibas has been fixed at Rs 2,500 per passenger, said Sanjeev KC of Chumlunga Transport Pvt.

The minibuses offer free Wi-Fi, air conditioning service and LED coach.

Earlier, passengers heading to Kathmandu from Bhojpur via Dharan were compelled to transit at various places for a journey lasting at least three days.
