KARACHI: In a major development that will ease the public transport sufferings of Karachiites to some extent, the much-aviated intra-district ‘Peoples Bus Service’ has been officially inaugurated by Foreign Minister and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari here Monday.
A good step . Let’s hope this will help a bit to make things easier for Karachi commuters. Much more needs to be done for Karachi and Sindh generally. “Happy to inform that Sindh’s People’s Bus Service has become operational & will operate from Malir Halt to Tower. #SindhGovt has procured 240 new hybrid air conditioned buses for Karachi which will operate on 7 different routes. Chairman #PPP will formally inaugurate the service today,” PPP’s Murtaza Wahab wrote.
Quite notable after hike in petrol & diesel prices the rush in traffic quite low. The new bus service will help people to move, do their routine jobs. Karachiites still feel deprived, due to lack of water, power, and gas. Still a long way for PPP to win hearts. The PPP minister said the government will launch Sindh People’s Intra-district Bus Service in Karachi in the last week of the current month under all circumstances.
