In a bid to provide secure and comfortable traveling facilities to women, the Punjab Transport Department is going to launch dedicated buses for them.
Jahanzeb Khan Kachi, the Punjab Transport Minister, said that these buses will be driven by women as well. He added that in the near future, the department would launch buses that would cater to women, especially female students and working women.
He stressed that social development can only progress if it provides the basic facilities to women because they make up more than half of the total population.
He added that they will improve C-category bus stands and the department is implementing a policy to provide waiting areas, toilets and safe drinking water at bus stations for the passengers, especially for the ease of women and children.
