Transporters involved in overloading, overcharging post-Eid travellers


SARGODHA: Heavy rush of travellers was seen at all bus terminals, as people were set to return to their workplaces after spending a long weekend and celebrating Eidul Azha.

However, most passengers complained about overloading and overcharging by public transport companies.

A group of people at the local bus terminal told APP on Sunday that they had been waiting for a bus for hours. There was heavy rush of travellers and most buses on the long route were not coming to the local bus stand and passing by the city through bypass routes.

An official of the Regional Transport Authority (RTA) said that strict action was being taken against transporters over violation of rules including overloading and overcharging.
