KATHMANDU: The Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) has said that all vehicles operating outside of the Kathmandu Valley should be only operated from the New Buspark at Gongabu in Kathmandu.
Issuing a notice here today, the KMC appraised all those concerned, especially the transport entrepreneurs, about this new provision. The new provision is applicable for vehicles operating outside the Valley that ply on short routes and long routes.
The provision aims to streamline the traffic management system in the bus park area where issues of haphazard parking, unsystematic uploading and unloading of passengers were rampant.
The ticket booking counter inside the bus park, however, will be kept intact, it was said.
Furthermore, the KMC has also urged the concerned sides to remove the ticket booking counter outside the bus park effective from June 16. The KMC has urged all the stakeholders for implementation of the new provision.
Also, those vehicles plying on the long route and obtaining permits up to Banepa, Sankhu, and Dhulikhel are barred from stopping at stations from Kalanki to Jadibuti.
The KMC shall coordinate with the Traffic Police to bring to book those disobeying the new notice, the KMC warned.
