This is the state of previously launched project in roughly mid 2000s. Abandoned to ruins in just less than a decade

The buses in question are lying stationary at a terminal especially constructed for the purpose at Surjani Town. A visit to the terminal was a revelation in itself - 73 state-of-the-art CNG buses, their art now rusting away, stand at the compound beyond the open gates. 'Stand' is an overstatement as most do not have tyres. Others are missing their batteries or auto-parts, making them incapable of plying the roads. The only sign of life at the compound, apart from the lone employee, are the stray dogs who have found a home inside the buses.

The army of dogs and the lone KMC employee stationed at the compound are, however, not enough to scare away opportunists, who view the open gates as an invitation to take away the buses' parts and sell them on the black market.

When approached by The Express Tribune, the KMC employee stationed at the compound, Abdul Ghafoor, expressed helplessness as he looked at the sorry state of the vehicles. "Most of these vehicles are not standing on their tyres while their batteries have also been stolen by the residents of nearby areas," he said, stating the obvious. "I am the only employee stationed here while there are three to four security guards at night." These personnel are, however, not enough to guard the whole compound, he explained.

The Green Bus service was initiated in 2005, by the then-mayor of Karachi, Niamatullah Khan. The service operated till 2007 after which it was suspended for some time. In 2009, Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad, resumed the service but it was terminated once again on April 23, 2013.

Buses which were in very good condition than these which were abandoned in Lahore.

240 buses are for Sindh.

Only 130 for Karachi, that's basically nothing for a city of 25 million population. It's a PR campaign. These buses will disappear like Green Buses, most of these buses will be sold to private companies, some will be disassembled and their parts will be sold.

PPP/PMLN/MQM are termites for Pakistan. Only reason these corrupt dynastic/feudalistic parties exists because of backing by establishment. Both scratch each other backs. If scratching doesn't work, blackmailing starts.

I don't know about a revolution taking place in Pakistan.. I do know that Karachi will erupt soon.

What do you want to say there should be no public transport till all these issues are resolved?? I do agree with you that 130 buses for Karachi are not enough for a metropolis.

What freaking foreign minister turns up at the launch of bus service ffs

Someone tell this lanati homosexual to go ducking do something useful

Last time a lanati homosexual PM was inaugurating buses in Karachi.

I agree with you that PPP has done almost nothing for the metropolis but if something good has happened, we should not report that??

Even this setup can work but needs these to be done for it to work.

1. Increase number of buses to atleast 2000.

2. Ban all cars and vehicles older then 2005. Or
Designated special roads for private vehicles and they should be banned from certain roads which will use these buses for transport mean.

3. Increase (or should I say introduce) car ownership tax to discourage private vehicles.

4. Build bus stops at every 200 meter with proper ticketing (or card system) facility.

Nothing of the thing that you mentioned would happen

This is a lollypop given to people of Karachi right before local bodies elections in Karachi

This bus service is the war against the second strong group in the city. Mafia against mafia, but ppp is using govt funds for it.
It will eventually fail. Because to defeat a determined ground, you need more determination. And sons of soil definitely lack that.
