Metro bus project being completed in record time: Shahbaz Sharif

Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said history was being written in Punjab’s transport sector by the launch of the Metro bus project as the project was being completed in a record period of eleven months, whereas it was completed in two and a half years in Turkey.
Presiding over a meeting to review the metro bus project, he said the metro bus was comfortable, affordable and safe.
“It would be made available to the general public in a few weeks,” he said.
“The cooperation of contractors and all concerned institutions is laudable. For the first two weeks, metro bus would be run free-of-cost, and later, its fare would be kept affordable for the common man.
The latest e-ticketing system would be introduced for the bus and the 9-kilometer-long flyover being constructed is a milestone of architecture,” he said.
The Chief Minister said the metro bus project is in its final phase, whereas, comfortable and affordable metro buses would soon ply for the convenience of the people.
He said the metro bus project is a wonder of transport and would bring revolutionary changes in the transport sector.
“The metro bus project has successfully been initiated on trial basis and has been highly appreciated by the citizens. The elite would also feel proud to travel with the common man when metro buses would start plying. The metro bus service has been launched and is being completed with a missionary zeal. This project is a historic achievement of Pakistan Muslim League (N),” he said.
He said the best arrangements were being made at bus stations for the convenience of commuters, while the entire system is being linked through a modern electronic system.
“Control rooms will be established at the stations and escalators would be installed,” he said.
The meeting was attended by Lahore Transport Company Chairman Khawaja Ahmad Hasaan, Punjab Metro Bus Authority Managing Director, LDA Director General and other concerned authorities.
