New buses to have affordable fares, quality and comfort
Sindh Minister for Information, Transport and Mass Transit Sharjeel Inam Memon announced on Friday that the Peoples Bus Service (PBS) will start service in Hyderabad on November 19.
He said that with this bus service, the people of Hyderabad would be able to travel at affordable rates in comfortable transport.
The first route of the PBS in Hyderabad will cover 15 kilometres from the main city centre’s Hyder Chowk to Hatri Police station, said Sharjeel, adding that 15 bus stops will be established on the route.
The buses will run from Hyder Chowk to Gul Centre, Thandi Sadak, Agriculture Complex, Wahdat Colony, Sindh Museum, Qasim Chowk, Jail Road, Isra Hospital, and terminate at Hattri Police Station, he stated.
Earlier this month, the PPP leader announced a new environment-friendly electric bus service for the people of Karachi.
These buses are capable of covering a distance of 240 kilometres on a charge of 20 minutes.
He said that the buses would be charged via solar energy and the company responsible for the project would also set up charging centres.
The minister said that the fare of electric buses will be less than the Red Buses, adding that the project would also be extended to other major cities of Sindh.
