71 Buses Arrive at Karachi Port for People’s Bus Service

The latest batch of 71 buses has arrived at Karachi port from China last night. According to a recent tweet from Sindh’s Minister for Transport, Sharjeel Memon, the buses will run on various routes throughout Karachi under the ‘People’s Bus Service’ banner.

Memon has set June 1 as a deadline for the rollout of people’s bus service on route-1, which spans between Malir and Merewether Tower. He issued these instructions to relevant officials during his meetings with National Radio Transmission Company (NRTC) and Sindh Infrastructure Development Company Limited ( SIDCL) on Monday.

Memon ordered the quick mobilization of the People’s Bus Service and Abul Sattar Eidhi Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) to facilitate the masses. “I have given June 1 as the cut-off date for operation of People’s Bus Service and for Orange Line May, 30,” the minister stated.

He added that those who fail to ensure the completion of these projects will face strict legal action.

  • bhai ye bhi local manufacturing karwaney chahiyen thi. jab sari import band hy to ye q import kin.

  • These could have been procured from local bus manufacturers. There are even Chinese Bus Manufacturer’s in Pakistan if the condition of the project demanded to use Chinese equipment. Importing them is bad move all together when we are looking at our pockets for dollars. The move if only justified if these buses were free of cost or payment made in Pak Rupee.
