A new and unknown world of mass transit opened up for Karachiites as the Green Line bus service became fully operational on Monday. As many as 80 buses could be spotted moving towards Surjani Town from Numaish and the other way around from 7am till 10pm.

For now one can get tickets in two ways one of which is going to the ticketing booth and pay Rs55 for a ticket for whether you are travelling to the station ahead or to all 22 stations. But another better and economical way is to buy a Rs100 card which can be topped up. As you reach a station to get off, the machines there will deduct your fare as per kilometer of your traveling.

#Karachi has a glorious bus-based mass transit line, 23 years after the Karachi Circular Railway shut down, and I couldn’t be happier. This is the Board Office station. A bunch of city enthusiasts went up & down the entire line to celebrate!

We got on at the cavernous Numaish station. The sight of a ticket booth was pure joy. I could hardly contain my joy!

That fresh bus smell and shine 🤩✨

The pictures of the transit system looks beautiful.

What is the occupancy rate? Is the operation subsidized by the gov.?

Does Karachi have plans for metro project? A city of its size will eventually need metro trains!

Do you guys have fare integration between the bus and circular railway? I find the Indian city transit systems lacking in this crucial area
