He further said that the university had already launched bus service for students of Lodhran, Lal Sohanra, Yazman, Musafir Khana and Khairpur Tamewali. The parents and students living in Ahmedpur East and adjoining areas had requested the Vice Chancellor Dr Athar Mahboob to provide bus service which will facilitate them to reach campus in a safe and comfortable transport on a daily basis. Meanwhile, local residents had lauded this initiative of the university.
Initially, this bus service had been started for students who want to visit the campus to complete laboratory work as classes had already been converted to online due to Covid-19. Reportedly, the students boarding on this bus service willingly follow Covid-19 safety measures.
