Sindh Transport Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon has announced that approximately 140 buses brought to Karachi under the Peoples Bus Service project will begin testing on 3rd June. Furthermore, around 140 buses brought here as part of the peoples of bus service project are one of the seven proposed routes in the big cities, and the number of Karachi people to start a test run on 3rd June. Moreover the transportation problem of 10 years ago will be alleviated to some extent. Moreover, in January, the successful launch of the Green Line bus service and the much-awaited inauguration of the Orange Line likely starts on next month.
100 new air-conditioned buses:
After successful testing, the Sindh government-controlled bus service’s proper commercial operation will begin within a few weeks, allowing 100 new air-conditioned buses to arrive from China by 20th June.
The buses will operate on 6 routes, including:
- North Karachi to Indus Hospital 32.9 km.
- Nagan Chowrangi to Singer Chowrangi 33 km.
- North Karachi to Dockyard 30.4 km.
- Surjani Town to PAF Masroor 28.2 km.
- Gulshan-i-Bihar to Singer Chowrangi 29 km.
- Mosamiyat to Baldia Town 28.9 km.
Sharjeel Memon highlighted:
Memon added that the People’s Bus Service is different from Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) projects. It will benefit the community. We need to drive the buses at least 1,000 miles [1,000 km] without the burden of passengers. Once that is done, we will be doing a mock operation . It will not be a commercial activity, and we will pass these buses under another test with a large load capacity. It may help us identify any problem or error that needs to be corrected before the commercial launch.
