Nepal needs cheaper, better bus service, not massive metro projects

The Himalayan Times : Public transportation - Detail News : Nepal News Portal: "Today Nepali people feel that public transport is for the poor. To ensure that people feel that public transport are for everyone and not only for the poor, the government should ensure safe, reliable, punctual, and cheaper bus services. If these conditions are met people would definitively shift from private to public transport gradually. Today, the Europeans park their cars at homes and use public transport to go to their workplace. The reliability, safety, and punctuality aspects are well maintained and using public transport is cheaper than using private vehicles. "
