The Uttarakhand Transport Corporation is going to start a bus service to Nepal under the Indo-Nepal Friendship Bus Service. An agreement was reached during a meeting in Kathmandu.
The bus service being contemplated will commence between Mahendra Nagar to New Delhi via Banbasa (Kumaon) and Dehradun to Mahendra Nagar and finally between Haridwar and Nepal Ganj.
“An agreement has been reached with Nepal but the details such as the routes, type of buses, etc are still to be worked out,” said B Kumar Sant, MD of the corporation, who participated at the meeting.
The service would not only usher in road connectivity between the two countries, but also provide facilities for residents who have relatives in Nepal.
