Motorcyclists operating under ride-sharing services have blocked roads in Shahbagh and Dhanmondi 27 protesting ban on mobile app based ride-sharing services.

Earlier on Wednesday, Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) suspended operating motorcycles under mobile app based ride-sharing services to ensure health safety guidelines and social distancing.

Meanwhile, BRTA issued a circular in this regard on Wednesday and sent the directives to the service providing companies.

The ban on running motorcycles under ride-sharing services will be effective until further notice (two weeks for now), according to the circular.
