It may be noted that earlier today, ARY New reported citing its sources that Pakistan signed an agreement with a Chinese company for procurement of buses for Karachi’s BRT Green Line project.
According to the sources, an agreement has been signed with a Chinese company, which will provide 80 buses for the Green Line BRT and 20 buses for the Orange Line project.
The buses are expected to reach Pakistan in next five to six months, according to sources.
The government officials had earlier said that the Green Line BRT project will be completed by mid-2021 to provide modern transport to Karachi citizens.
In November, Sindh Infrastructure Development Company Limited (SIDCL) had approved the purchase of buses for the Green Line BRT.

The Greenline BRT system, along with the Karachi Circular Railway revival project, are very likely to be game changers for not only Karachi but also Pakistan. Imagine how much inefficiencies are introduce in day-to-day business routines and how much fossil fuel (and $$$) gets burnt due to traffic jams on the streets of Karachi.

Every government donates some green or orange line buses.

100 buses added to the non existent infrastructure are a burden more than a comfort.

The government should help the people left homeless by the restoration work on KCR and Liyari Expressway.
