KARACHI: In offering some respite from the heat to the residents of Karachi, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) on Wednesday gifted ten new buses to the city of lights.

Provincial Transport Minister Nasir Hussain Shah said that the bus service is a joint venture of Sindh government and a private company.

“Sindh government has not invested anything in this project,” he said before stating that Asif Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto had advised to provide transport facilities to the citizens of Karachi.

One bus can accommodate around 30 people at a time whereas the rent varies between Rs20, Rs30 and Rs40. The buses will run from 6am to 11pm between Dawood Chowrangi and Tower.

Muhmmad Azhar Sajjad | 2 years ago | Reply | Recommend Gift of Buses is good gesture for Karachitis. People's Party can win the hearts of Karachitis by providing them a reasonable transport system which is a dire need of Karachi City. Moreover POP should not wait in providing this facility to Karachi. For this purpose Public Private Partnerships process can very fruitfully utilized.
