Fifty percent tickets of the trains will be sold considering the coronavirus situation, he said, adding that passengers will have to purchase tickets online.

Food supply at trains will be suspended for ensuring health guidelines.

People can buy their tickets five days before their scheduled time.

All passengers have been asked to bring their food and water and reach the stations 60 minutes before the scheduled departure.

Besides, no stoppages will be made at Dhaka Airport, Joydevpur and Narsingdi stations.

Train services resumed on May 31 with eight pairs of intercity trains. Bangladesh Railway started selling tickets through online from May 30 to avoid health risks.

The government on May 29 issued a gazette notification allowing limited operation of public transport and offices from May 31 to June 15 amid the coronavirus outbreak.

It said public transports – buses, trains, and vessels – will have to maintain health guidelines.
