FNNTEA starts pre-booking from today
KATHMANDU—The federation of Nepalese National Transport Entrepreneurs Association (FNNTEA) has opened the annual pre-Dashain booking from today. The transportation entrepreneurs opened advance booking after the government agreed to increase public transport fares by 10 percent on Saturday.
The advance booking for bus tickets had remained uncertain because the transport operators associated with the FNNTEA had been demanding the government to unfreeze their bank accounts and adjust the fares in view of rising fuel prices.
Though they said that the booking would be opened from 21 September, the transport operator associated with FNNTEA did not take any booking till yesterday. Only the private transportation companies started pre-booking from 21 September.Follow @gorkhapost
