In order to promote the culture of the Potohar region, the government has decided to launch double-decker buses in Islamabad and Rawalpindi.

The bus service is set to be launched next month in February, which will be operated by the Tourism Development Corporation Punjab (TDCP).

  • First make Islamabad airport metro which the citizens of twin city need desperately and thn waste money on these stupid adventures like did buses.

  • If we leave the projects of previous govt on political issues, it only harms the country nothing else, airport metro projects is going down the drain

  • It is a humble request kindly complete the Islamabad metro bus phase 2 the whole kashmir highway is interrupted devastatingly. Without any doubt, this is a good initiative in order to promote tourism but despite of personal politics the projects that are already been started, should be completed first it should be your first priority to complete them.

  • The contours of Islamabad are not suitable for double decker busses. Moreover, if it’s only for site seeing than how many tourist can be pulled for site seeing in Islamabad. Leave the transport sector upto private sector only manage n monitor proper operationalization.
    Also there are many options for investment in social sector i.e health, education, water n sewerage etc. Please pick n chose projects as per the demands n needs of poor masses.

  • I think the immediate action of the government is required to construct Islamabad airport metro

  • R they having a laugh!!!, complete BRT peshawar first, then go for other services, Peshawar BRT has become a joke of this govt.. People of Peshawar are still suffering from the corruption and laziness of this so called project of change.

  • Indeed a good thing in prevailing local tourism in isb and Rwp cities useful to seeing beauty of Islamabad which is more discoverable by general public shuttle services to metro main stops also needed to access tourist places of margalla hills zoo bari imam saidpur rawal same samly dame. Isb metro project should also complete to isb air port

  • Will it Card mathed tekting , for raguler passengers like employ and students etc. Its good. Best of luck Pakistan

  • It is to time first complete the Metro project then other think the other project No waist of money and time of the country by the experiments.

  • They should also have a eye on the other cities like quetta and peshawar.they should also promote development in these cities. Only punjab isn’t pakistan.peshawar and queta are also mega cities and also the capitals of two provinces and these cities also need better transport facilities
