Inter-district bus, train and launch services resumed across the country on Monday after a long suspension due to the evolving situation of coronavirus.

The authorities concerned have been asked to keep half of the seat vacant for ensuring social distancing rules to halt the spread of the virus.

Our photographer took these images from Sadarghat launch terminal, Sayedabad bus stand and Kamlapur rail station in the capital, to portray the situation of the first day of resuming the transports.

Buses are seen carrying passengers keeping many seats vacant. However, in some cases they break rules a little bit.
