The Kolkata-Jessore-Khulna trial bus service will be flagged off on August 30, a senior state government transport department official said here today.
State transport minister and the Bangladesh deputy High Commissioner are likely to flag off the service, which is a part of the regional free trade agreement- Bangladesh-Bhutan-India-Nepal Motor Vehicles Agreement.
Meanwhile, the Kolkata-Dhaka cruise service by Vivada was likely to commence in the near future.
"The standard operating procedures are under preparation by the Inland Waterways Authority. We hope to begin in near future," Vivada executive director R Sushila said.
