CDA to Add 13 New Routes to Islamabad’s Public Transport Network

Capital Development Authority (CDA) is preparing to launch 13 new bus routes in two phases. According to CDA Chairman, Capt. (Retd.) Usman Younis, the first phase will see the provision of transport for six congested routes, with PIMS serving as the central point.

Route 1 will run from Allama Iqbal Open University to Shifa International Hospital and then to Potohar Station via I-8 Markaz. Route 2 will run from PIMS to the Secretariat, passing through Jinnah Super and Super Market.

Route 3 will connect G7, G6, Melody Market, Abpara, and NADRA with PIMS. Route 4 will run from F-11 to Red Line Metro station F-8. From PIMS, route 5 will connect sectors G-8, G-9, G-10, and G-11. Route 6 will connect Abpara to Taramri Chowk via Park Road.

In the second phase, the administration will procure buses for seven additional routes. Route 7 will begin at the Police Foundation and end at the Faiz Ahmed Faiz Red Line Metro Station, while Route 8 will link sector D-12 to the Orange Line Metro at G-10.

Route 9 will stretch between F-11 and F-8, while Route 10 will extend service coverage to rural areas from Nilore to Khanna Bridge.

Route 11 will extend up to Chungi No. 26 to provide transportation for residents of the B-17 sector. The details are scarce regarding the remaining two routes.

Younis added that CDA will also create a route from Faizabad to Pir Wadhai, once the IJP road is completed. He added that PIMS will serve as the new routes’ hub, linking the service to Red Line and Orange Line Metro.

Meanwhile, CDA is evaluating the feasibility of all routes and is preparing tender documents for various contractors.

  • These buses can be made in Pakistan by Hino and other companies. But CDA officials are importing it directly from China. Why?. Someone should investigate that why locally made buses are not prioritized and who is getting profits on imports?. Chinese are known to give bribes in developing nations.
    Please learn from India where almost every bus is locally made and they are exporting buses around the world. We should prioritize “Made in Pakistan” at all costs.

    • بھائی قوم ان بسوں قوم کے لیئے پچاس سال سے منتظر ہے۔ جو مل رہا ہے صبر شکر سے لے لو۔ نیا لچ مت تلو۔ ھم نے تو کبھی چنگ چی بہی مکمل نہیں بنائی۔ ابھی چائنا کی اور ترکی سے منگوا لو۔ جب بنا لو تو بدل دینا ے

    • Have we ever made anything worthwhile in Pakistan? What buses (made in Pakistan) are you talking about?

      As regards corruption, who can be more corrupt than us?

    • Hino produces worst quality of buses in Pakistan. They are noisy, consumes lot of fuel, have faulty gear boxes and heats up.

  • Need a bus route on Siri-nagar highway (G-14) to Taramri and Taramri to G-14 for specifically students and faculty.. as many students of universities i.e (COMSATS, Hamdard, Abasyn, PEAC, and uni of NARC, NIH many more on this road) are in need of proper public transport…

    Student cards should also be introduced in this service…

  • Aoa, dear Mr Chairman CDA, before finalizing any decision on routes, please take into consideration the public opinion, because these routes and buses are for the general public and you must know which routes are important for them.

  • What about sector I-9 and I-10, there are thousands of industrial workers as well as residents but there is no public transport facility available. Metro busses only comes at one end which is not sufficient. Kindly do something for these sectors too.

  • Major portions of Islamabad having dense population and frequent commute requirements exist outside sectorial area. Please pay attention to it too.

    Further, ticket rates should be realistic and not subsidized. Discounts should only be for students, disabled and senior citizens.
