The government has opened advance ticket bookings for those who wish to go to their hometowns for the upcoming Dashain, Tihar, and Chhath festivals.

In the capital, advance passenger bus ticket booking has been opened for those who are here from different parts of the country for study, business and employment and to return home to celebrate the festivals.

A significantly large number of people will leave Kathmandu leading to a rise in the number of passengers. Hence, the advance booking of tickets has been opened almost two weeks before the festivals start.

Advance ticket booking has been opened today by the Department of Transport Management in collaboration with transport traders, traffic police, and concerned agencies.

President of the National Confederation of Nepal Transport Entrepreneurs, Vijay Bahadur Swar, said that advance ticket booking has been opened for long and medium-distance passengers. People can book their tickets in advance from New Bus Park, Chabahil, Gaushala, Koteshwar, Sundhara, and Kalanki.

According to him, advance ticket booking has been opened to go to places like Dhangadhi, Tikapur, Bajhang, Bajura, Salyan, Rukum, Pyuthan, Rolpa in the west and Taplejung, Ilam, Kakadvitta, Udayapur and other places in the east. The transport businessmen have also requested the relevant agencies to facilitate the operation of transport by maintaining the good condition of major road networks of the country.

Lotse Multi-Purpose Pvt. Ltd., which operates the new bus park in Gongobu, has added ticket booking counters in collaboration with the transport operators. Head of the human resources department of the company, Pankaj Malla, said that bus ticket counters have been increased compared to normal time to provide tickets to the passengers going home for Dashain in a systematic manner.

Meanwhile, the Kathmandu Valley Traffic Police Office and Traffic Management Department are going to set up passenger help desks at different 14 locations in the capital targeting the passengers leaving the capital for their home town. The spokesperson of the office, Senior Superintendent of Police Rajendra Prasad Bhatta said that the passenger help desk will work to ensure that the passengers are not charged higher than the specified fare along with coordination required for the passengers to reach their destination without any hassles.
