Metro Bus Rides are Now Free for Citizens in Islamabad in 2022

Shehbaz Sharif, the Prime Minister, has announced that the Metro bus service will be free for commuters during Ramadan. He made the announcement during an inspection of the project earlier this morning, Thursday (today).
During his visit to the Metro Bus Service in Islamabad, he also questioned the four-year delay in the completion of the Metro Bus project from Peshawar Morr to New Islamabad International Airport.
Officials from the Capital Development Authority (CDA) and the National Highway Authority (NHA) briefed him on the project, and he stated that Rs. 16 billion has been spent on it, and the delay is disappointing.

The premier has directed that a committee be formed to investigate the delay.

He was also informed that the Metro bus service from Peshawar Morr to New Islamabad International Airport will begin in part on Saturday, 16 April, after the Punjab Metro Bus Authority receives fifteen buses, and that the buses for this project will be available by 5 May.

PM Sharif also stated that the Metro bus service should allow passengers to carry luggage and ordered the construction of a Metro bus station on the highway.

The Prime Minister also requested that feasibility studies for the Bhara Kahu and Rawat routes be conducted as soon as possible.

She went on to say that the premier has insisted on high-quality transportation for residents of Islamabad and its surrounding areas.
