Metiaburuz MLA Abdul Khaleque Molla, state Transport secretary Rajesh Sinha and senior Transport department officials were also present on the occasion.

Hakim pointed out that the decision of starting the bus route S-62 (Kasba and Metiabruz via Gariahat- Rashbehari Xing- Chetla- Mominpur- Khidirpur- Ramnagar- Bichalighat) was taken following requests received from people while he was conducting door-to-door campaign before the Bhowanipore by-election.

"Many women told me that they are unable to go to their relative's houses or other places due to less number of bus services and closure of bus route number 17. We forwarded their request to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and approved the new bus route connecting Metiabruz and Kasba," he added.

The S-62 bus will ply at an interval of 15 minutes from both ends.

The bus will run till 10.30 pm to 10.45 pm. Hakim pointed out that a new bus stand along with the passenger shelter will be constructed at the place from where the state Transport minister flagged the bus so that the passengers are not inconvenienced.
