Feni municipality launched country's first female bus service outside Dhaka on Sunday.

Nizam Uddin Hazari, Member of Parliament from Feni-2 Constituency and General Secretary of District Awami League, cut the ribbon and officially announced the inauguration of the bus service in the morning.

Superintendent of Police of Feni Zakir Hasa, Mayor of Feni Municipality Nazrul Islam Swapan Miyaji, Star Line Group Vice Chairman Zafar Uddin, Feni Chamber of Commerce and Industry President Ainul Kabir Shamim, Feni Reporters Unity President Shukdev Nath Tapan and General Secretary Ali Haider Manik, among others, were present in the event.

According to municipal sources, every day hundreds of women from different upazilas of Feni district visited the district town for daily work including education and treatment. The women had to go through various uncomfortable situations including sexual harassment as there was no specific transport service for them. The matter came to the attention of the mayor and took the initiative.

Mayor Nazrul Islam said they have initiated the service with 3 buses and the number of buses will be increased considering the necessity.
