Imagine going on a lengthy trip to the island of Tuvalu and having the time of your life but realizing you don’t have enough money to buy a return ticket back home. Or maybe you are traveling through multiple countries at once, say in Europe, and realize that you have spent way more than you were planning to during just half of the trip.

The topped off vehicles cannot accommodate the commuters comfortably and a morning ride is most certainly always a hassle. A transport is used as the means to reach a destination – educational institution, health facilities or work place – but if commuting becomes a complication, it will apparently make an impact on the welfare and psychology of commuters. Sonam Lama of My City talked to the students of British College, Thapathali to listen to their everyday experience of traveling from home to college in public vehicles and their ideas to make the journey hassle-free.

CHITWAN, July 5: Road accidents along the Narayanghat-Mugling road section have so far claimed 47 live this fiscal year.  14 of these victims are still missing. This busy road is a great horror to travelers as they never know what would happen of them on the way.
