In a bid to help traders hit by shifting of bus stand, Batamaloo traders association has started subsidized transport service for businessmen of the area for ferrying their materials and supplies.

As per the traders, the move has been initiated after the transport costs for ferrying supplies rose up after shifting of bus stand to Parimpora.

“We have started this subsidized transport service in order to mitigate suffering of traders of Batamaloo area,” said Peer Imtiyaz of BTA.

He said that they would charge nominal fare to the traders for ferrying supplies as post-shifting of bus stand cost of supplying material from Batamaloo to other places had increased manifold.

“Our trade has taken hit by shifting of bus stand, and therefore it is our duty to do our bit to help our brothers in this hour of crisis,” he said.
