Booking bus tickets early for Dashain likely to be impossible

Posted by Anup Baral September 15, 2016 :
Reservation of bus tickets from Kathmandu to various parts of the nation for this year̢۪s Dashain has gone down by almost 50 per cent, according to transportation entrepreneurs. Thousands of people go back to their homes to celebrate Dashain every year. However, reservation of bus tickets this year has decreased massively compared to the previous years, say transportation entrepreneurs. According to the Paschim Nepal Bus Byawasai Sangh (PNBBS), Kathmandu, ticket reservation has gone down by 50 per cent ahead of this Dashain compared to last year, though the advanced booking of tickets has been opened since a week. Around 1.5 million people leave Kathmandu every Dashain. Passengers will now have to buy tickets on the day they leave for their destination. The Transport Management Department said that it would be difficult for them to manage the huge number of people leaving Kathmandu during this festive season.
