In a public notification issued today by Punjab Government’s Transport Department, it has been announced that the one-way fare for the Orange Line Metro Train service has been set at Rs. 40 per passenger.
Provincial Minister for Transport Jahanzeb Khan Kachchi stated that he and the government are determined to completing projects started with public money.
Minister for Transport also said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) led government is constantly striving to provide better quality transport facilities to the people at affordable rates.
In previous reports, the government had announced the launch of Orange Line Rapid Transit Service to take place by the end of October 2020. Reportedly, the provincial cabinet was told in a session back in August, that the construction and other technical works on the 25-kilometer long train track had been completed, and that the concerned parties are now working on the necessary final touches to commence the project.
The latest updates are yet to arrive on when the Orange Line Rapid Transit service would become operational for public use, however, with the fares having been decided, the launch of the service is seemingly quite near.
