Bus transport workers say that 60 to 65 buses are leaving from Barguna to different places including Dhaka. However, about 40 buses ply on this route during normal times.

After going to the Barguna Municipal Bus Terminal on Sunday afternoon, it was seen that many people are sitting without getting tickets. Garment worker Shahidul Islam said, 'I came home to celebrate Eid with my relatives after getting six days off. The factory is open tomorrow. So I have to return to Dhaka. Bus tickets are not available. I am going to Dhaka by buying a ticket for 1000 taka in green view transport. Took 400 taka more than normal time.'

Saiful Islam, who is in charge of the Barguna ticket counter of Sonartari Paribahan, said that the bus owners have increased the fare for the special service of Eid. So they are charging 900 Tk. Earlier, due to passenger shortage, the fare was charged at 500 taka.
