The women-only bus service operated by Nepali Minibus Entrepreneurs Association, has become effective and popular in the capital Kathmandu, the National News Agency RSS reported on Friday.
According to the RSS, the association had brought the bus service only catering to women into operation since Sept 6.
Women-only bus service was started with the request of women and taking into consideration the inconveniences faced by women commuters especially during and after office hours.
In the beginning only three buses were used for operating this service but the number of buses has been increased to eight now, president of the association, Siddhiman Maharjan said.
He said the women-only bus service will be operated on trial basis until Sept 16 and most likely to be continued after that.
