Bangladesh Road Transport Owners Association has expressed concern that there will be a transport crisis if half of the buses run on the roads as per the government's instructions.
The transport owners' body also thinks passenger pressure due to fewer vehicles may increase the infection rate.
The organisation, in a press release on Monday, demanded the government's decision to be changed immediately, reports Jago News.
The Cabinet Division on Sunday issued a circular allowing public transport in all routes to operate from August 11. Public transportations can carry passengers equal to their capacity, but the numbers of vehicles have to be reduced by 50%.
Therefore, following the instructions of the government, the owners association has decided to return to the previous fare of public transports.
