The meeting also reviewed the operations of the People’s Bus Service in Sukkur, Larkana, and Hyderabad and the launch of Route 4, 5, 6 and 7 in Karachi. The provincial minister ordered the initiation of the People’s Bus Service in Sukkur on January 29.

He also directed the managing director of the Sindh Mass Transit Authority to visit the remaining routes of the People’s Bus Service in Karachi and assess the improvement of the roads.

Sharjeel said that buses should operate on routes 4, 5, 6 and 7 of Karachi as soon as possible so that more citizens have the facility of modern public transport.
