Lahore to Get a Ropeway Transit System

Soon you will be able to take a chairlift to travel across Lahore.

Chief Minister (CM) Punjab, Shahbaz Sharif, announced that the city will be getting a new ropeway transport system soon.

Feasibility Being Carried Out

Currently the project is in its planning stage with the CM ordering a feasibility study to be prepared. As part of the study, three main routes in Lahore are currently being considered for the chairlift system:

  • Imamia Colony to Railway Station
  • Jehangir Tomb to Greater Iqbal Park
  • Jalo Mor to Thokar Niaz Baig

Islamabad to Murree

Aside from Lahore, another ropeway system is also being considered between Islamabad and Murree. If the project becomes a reality, you can go from Islamabad to Murree in a chairlift, all the while admiring the landscape from above.

A meeting was held to discuss the project, headed by CM Punjab. Provincial ministers Chaudhry Sher Ali, Mujtaba Shuja-ur-Rehman, secretaries transport, enviroment, MD Punjab mass transit authority, Commissioner Lahore Division Abdullah Sumbal were also present at the meeting.

Mr. Shahbaz Sharif said that the ropeway transport project has been finalized with an international company which will be working in collaboration with the Punjab government.

Metro Bus Feeder System

Earlier a new metro feeder bus system was launched in Lahore. A total of 200 buses operate under the system, providing the same facilities as a metro bus.

If you travel through a feeder bus first you will be required to pay Rs. 15 for your trip. However, if you are transferring from a metro bus to a feeder bus you will have to pay an additional Rs. 5 on top of the original Rs. 15 fare.

  • میڑو کی دال پیچ چکے، اب رسیوں پر لٹکا کر ووٹ جھاڑنے جائیں گے. نوکریاں ہی نوکریاں ہو جائیں گیں. ہر لفٹ میں ایک عدد بی اے پاس کو کنڈیکٹر لگا دیا جائے گا. تعلیمی ادارے اور طبی مراکز سہولیات سے بھلے محروم رہیں لیکن ان تک پہنچنے کے ذرائع ضرور پیدا کیے جائیں گے. اب یہ عوام کی نااہلی ہے کہ جیسے ان کو بقول شریف برادران کے یہ پتا نہیں چلتا کہ بجلی آ رہی ہے یا نہیں یا بجی کا صحیح استعمال نہیں آتا اسی طرح عوام کو طبی مراکز سے مستفید ہونے کا بھی طریقہ معلوم نہیں ہو گا.

  • Huhu. This is a joke. Never saw or heard about this “transport system” in cities of developed countries. Instead of wasting money on this dangerous cr*ap, start constructing underground (subway) and leave Lahore alone.

  • WTF!!! HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHA. it’s like a Belated April Fool’s Joke from CMShahbaz……
