LAHORE: After the arrival of 54 new vehicles, 111 buses will begin operating on various routes of Lahore.

The buses will be operated by Busco Foton Company, which has signed a contract with the Punjab government. “Busco Foton is committed to providing efficient and affordable transport facilities to the people of Lahore,” said Joe Verghese, the company’s chief executive.

The buses, he said, are specifically designed for the Pakistani market, local climatic condition, social norms and technical specifications required for the region.

He appreciated the efforts of the Punjab chief minister and the Lahore Transport Company that ensured the execution of the contract. “Owing to reforms introduced in the urban transport sector by the Punjab government, Busco has been able to provide international standard buses for Lahore,” he said. “The fare for our air-conditioned buses is in accordance with the approved and notified list issued by the government.”

Verghese said that he hopes that the Punjab government will resolve the issues of students and CNG shortage in the province.
