Islamabad and Rawalpindi are Getting 2 New Bus Services With Discounts

Capital Development Authority (CDA) plans to introduce two new bus services — the Purple Line and the Silver Line — in Rawalpindi and Islamabad. The new services will include special benefits for students and senior citizens.

CDA Chairman’s office has informed the media that the Purple Line bus service will operate on IJP Road, while the Silver Line will operate from Taramri. To further facilitate the commuters, the Blue Line bus service will be extended to Rawat.

Students and people over the age of 60 will pay only half the fare, while children under the age of ten will ride for free on both bus services.

People living near IJP Road, such as Pirwadhai, Khyaban-e-Sir Syed, Dhoke Najju, New Katarian, Dina, Pindora, Shamsabad, and the I-9, I-10, and I-11 sectors, would benefit from Purple Line bus service.

The initial plan called for the purchase of 300 new buses for these new services. The civic agency will likely contact China again to purchase new buses.

Speaking on the development, an official said:

The launch of two new bus services is part of the efforts being made to provide a modern transport system to the people at highly affordable prices. These services will cover those areas where Metro Bus service is currently not operating.

  • A very good decision. If the metro or bus service is run separately on the routes from Pirwadhai to Rawat and Faizabad to Murree, then these two routes can cover the financial loss or expenses of the bus service running on other routes.

  • Urgently needed to start bus service from Adyala Road to Metro Saddar terminal and further to Islamabad airport.
