Metro bus makes the grand entrance for common man on 11 February. PHOTO: ONLINE
Metro bus Service kicks off with routes and stations decorated with fresh flowers and balloons.
Finally Something good,, Appreciation surely due!!!
After looking at these pics I am getting more sold to the idea that these Metro buses will be insufficient in no time. Pakistan needs to invest in Railways to offer as an alternative towards Mass Transport.
All this celebration for just a bus service? I just don’t understand the mass euphoria.
alas! we are not worth of this service, we need many years to make our self worth and to learn the etiquette of travelling
PMLN and Shahbaz Sharif have always proved themselves as Mayor of Lahore instead of CM of Punjab, CM sahab apart from focusing on 10 million Lahore population focus on remaining 90 million population of Punjab as well
its great achievement everyone can travel in metro bus service like peoples do in london.
Its all for common men. We should appreciate to PML( N ).Recommend
@FS: yar tm log chahtay kia ho, khush rhna aata hy ya nai, kbi kisi k achy kaam par appreciate b kr dia kro yar, ajeeb kisam k log hain kasam say, and 4 ur kind information railway punjab govt k under me nai hy its under pakistan govt
when a center-hub will be sold the whole wheal will be strong, tubes are only in London but not in Manchester, tube rails are only in Dubai but not in the rest UAE, so please learn to appreciate.
Men & women together? Meh.
its rigth of people to good transport system , govt. should be appreciated by providing the factilties like people have in developed world.
if there are few problems with lahore Metro they can be adressed with passage of time.
Thanks to Punjab government
One thing that we should kept in mind that we should think positive . These types of services and facilities will help us in longer run to live a happy life but yes on the other hand pm should also show some response to the other cities not only Punjab, but also in whole Pakistan . Our country is not limited to Lahore only.
I think its all about choices. If in southern Punjab more than 150 infants die before their first birthday in every 1,000 live births – the rate similar to that in ub-saharan Africa, and if people in Lahore have alternative, perhaps time consuming and expensive mode of travel, then we need to understand where should the Govt should have spent Rs.30 billion. For some a bus service in metropolitan city is a higher priority.Recommend
YOU ARE GREAT NAWAZ SHARIF AND SHAHBAZ SHARIF.EVERY PAKISTANI LOVES TO YOU.
YOU ARE GREAT LEADERS AND ALWAYS THINK ABOUT PEOPLES AND WANT TO GIVE GOOD
LIVING AND GOOD EMPLOYMENT .AND NEVER MAKE BEGGERS TO PEOPLES.YOU ALWAYS
GAVE CONFIDENCE IN EVERY SCHEME OR IN EVERY WORK LIKE THAT YELLOW CAB,
AASHIYANA SCHEME,MOTOR WAY,MODEL BAZAR,METRO BUS AND MUCH MORE
Interesting, whenever our government tries to solve the transportation woes of “Ghareeb Awam” they end up with these fancy buses.
It was done in Karachi, is being done in Lahore. Even CM sb would know that this will only earn some soft points for the upcoming elections, but then may be this is what he is after.
Karachi and Lahore both need Mass transit system. Call it train or call it tube, even though an expensive option, it is the long term answer to many problems these two cities are facing.
nice to see people smiling and having fun , i am happy for their happiness
Madness costing 30 billions purchased from Turkey.Shobaz zindabad.Vote for …..
best transport means a airplane, a BMW car or roles rice but are you not buy a small car ,a motorcycle or even a cycle according to your available finance not only according to your needs.
@yasir farid:And ROTIAN(bread) also
This is very excellent bus service which has been started by the honorable chief minster of punjab Mian Shahbaz Shrif, this was the vital need excellent job he did “GOD” bless him
It’s Not just Good It’s very good and further more is Excelent……..:)
dont spoil your country`s property metro bus is facility
It will bring Pakistani men and women closer.
It will be interesting to see what happens when the TTP and others of their ilk manage to get their hands on this…. for a “free ride” — to wherever…!! It is only a matter of time… ;-)
People, why don’t you understand? Metro bus isn’t a small project. The same enjoyment and rush of people happened here in Abu Dhabi for new bus services and Dubai Metro(train). Perhaps its bit more in Pakistan because there were no development at this level. Metro bus are similar to Dubai bus, its operations are similar to Abu Dhabi bus operations. All tunnels bridges are like UAE ones. Overhead pedestrian crossings are like Abu Dhabi ones. Metro bus takes Pakistan in a bit to new era, of development. Our media needs to understand this. Just look at what the album title says “Metro Bus Madness”. Where as if you notice its just 1 pic that shows people fighting to get into bus. Rest of the pics are completely fine. And for those who say that this metro bus investment could have made 10 state-of-the-art hospitals, if hospitals would have been made then they would have been asking for Transport investment. See, you have to start from somewhere. You can’t make everything grow at same time. As for Metro operations to be going on, people need to get civilized and make sure to use them properly because its bought by their own money.
pmln is only good for making roads
@Vikrant: Worry what will happen to Delhi Metro when Naxalites get their hands on it. Happy Times!
To all Pakistani Youth, demand the Pakistan Government to RESEARCH and Use the Nuclear power U already have to develop into ELECTRICAL ENERGY and improve the transporation of MASSES across the Country and U have the talent, instead ot following the path OF TERROR, divert Ur energies in building LUXURY RAILWAY COACHES and U all SEE the PROGRESS U will not BELIEVE it is POSSIBLE. GOOD LUCK
