Punjab Will No Longer Allow Outdated Public Transport Vehicles

The Punjab government has decided to take old and dilapidated public transport vehicles off the roads of the province.

It was decided in a meeting of the provincial cabinet’s sub-committee that was held in Lahore. The lawmakers argued that the decision will reduce the air pollution levels and benefit the health of the public.
