Kandahar residents demand bus service

afghan busA number of residents of the Kandahar city have demanded the government to reintroduce the public transport bus service that was shut down by the government years ago.

This comes as the commuters are faced with high taxi airfares.

The government had to wound up the service, as the income did not meet fuel, maintenance and salaries for the staff.

According to the Deputy Head of the Mili Bus Department Mohammad Daud Akhtari, the government can provide 16 buses for transportation buses. However, the service may stop again, if there are not enough passengers.

Thirty-five buses had been provided to Kandahar after they were given to the country in donation by Pakistan, Iran and India, which provided 25 buses. The service came to an end after most of the vehicles were damaged.
