There is a new luxury bus company starting operations in Pakistan that will offer Lahore to Islamabad and vice versa trips starting at just Rs. 1.
Royals Express says that it will offer variable fares just like airlines do. Basically, if you reserve your seat in advance and early, then you will be charged less. The fares on your booked ride will keep increasing (Rs. 200, Rs. 400 and so on) until bus is half booked or more.
Simply put, if you are the first one to book a ticket on a particular ride, the first ticket will be sold for Rs. 1. The a chunk of tickets will be sold for Rs. 200, then another block of tickets for Rs. 400 and so on.
Here is how the bus fares will be broken down:
