Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) which is known as BRTC was established in 1961. According to Wikipedia, BRTC was established in the 4th February of 1961. That’s before our independence. That means the BRTC bus service is running from the Pakistani era. BRTC was inaugurated by M.N Huda who was the finance minister of east Pakistan in 1961. And since then, BRTC is running successfully in independent Bangladesh till today.
