Sindh govt to buy 250 hybrid buses from China for People’s Bus Service
KARACHI, December 14: Sindh provincial government is set to purchase 250 hybrid buses from China for Sindh Intra District People’s Bus Service.
The provincial cabinet approved the purchase of 250 hybrid buses in September. These buses will run in Karachi, Hyderabad, Sukkur, Larkana, Mirpur Khas and Shaheed Benazirabad.
On Monday afternoon, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the PPP-led Sindh government has decided to launch an intercity bus project.
Speaking at a news conference here at Bilawal House, he announced the Sindh government will launch intercity and intra-city bus projects for Karachi by the end of January 2022.
"The Sindh government will fulfill all its commitments related to Red Line and Orange Line BRTs (Bus Rapid Transport) and would also launch bus service in Karachi,” the PPP chairman remarked.
The development comes after Prime Ministry Imran Khan recently launched the Green Line BRT project in Karachi. Under this plan, 80 China-made buses will facilitate the passengers in Karachi.
