Railway to start sale of return tickets Wednesday

Bangladesh Railway will start selling return train tickets from Wednesday.

The railway, however, on Sunday completed sale of advance train tickets ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr amid complaints that many holidaymakers could not purchase tickets online.

Now, 15 percent unsold tickets which were supposed to sell online will be available at counters.

The sale of return tickets will begin on May 29. Advance return tickets for June 7 would be sold  on May 29. The tickets for June 8 would be sold on May 30, tickets for June 9 will be available on May 31, tickets for June 10 on June 1 and tickets for June 11 will be found on June 2.

The additional six trains will start operation between June 2 and June 4 from Dhaka to different destinations. After Eid, trains will run between June 6 and June 12 from different destinations to Dhaka. Moreover, twelve special trains will run on various routes during the Eid.

Railway source said no saloon (coach) would be added to the trains for VIPs 10 days before and 10 days after the Eid.
