There is still one week left to repair the rest to make them roadworthy, he said.

If the buses are not roadworthy, they will not be allowed to carry home-bound Eid travelers, he said.

"If the buses have no stickers, we will not allow them to operate. Therefore, we ask the police and transportation offices to ticket them," he said.
