Based on the far-sighted vision of our great 4th King of Bhutan, the City Bus Service was born in 1999 managed by the Thimphu City Corporation. Back then, there were only 4 Eicher buses. Gradually the numbers increased to 45 buses in Thimphu, and the service also got extended to Phuentsholing with 4 buses. The management and operations of the City Bus service were transferred to Bhutan Post in April 2001 through Government directives (letter No.CCM/03/00/756 dated 7/12/2000). As per two recent Cabinet directives, the City Bus Office’s operation modality is changed to a state-owned enterprise (SOE) reporting directly to Dasho Thrompon, Thimphu w.e.f. 6th April 2020.
