    BRT Peshawar (Metrobus)'s first phase will consist of an east-west route which will stretch from Chamkani in the east end to Hayatabad in the west end of Peshawar. The system will have 31 stations and will be mostly at grade, with four kilometers of elevated sections and 3 elevated stations. The line will also contain 3.5 kilometers of underpasses.The entire route will be fenced to prevent unauthorized pedestrian crossings, and to prevent vehicular traffic from entering. It will feature passing lanes at each station, allowing the function of a "direct service" system in which buses from suburban areas can access it's dedicated bus-lanes for use as an express service directly to the city's center.

    Feeder system

    The BRT system will be complemented by a feeder system consisting of 8 routes extending 68 kilometres. Feeder buses will use dedicated BRT lanes as needed before exiting the system and entering onto city streets as on-street bus service.The feeder routes will add an additional stations along those feeder lines, all of which will be new construction. Feeder station will be spaced approximately 300-500 metres from one another. Feeder system buses will be 9 and 12 metres long.

    Buses

    TransPeshawar will use a fleet of 383 buses, of which 131 will be 9 metre-long buses, while 252 will be 12 metre-long buses.Buses on the BRT route will initially be 12 metre-long buses, though the system is designed to accommodate 18-metre long buses that may be necessary in the future. Buses will feature low-floor entrances,unlike current buses that have a raised station platforms to allow ease of access.

    Construction

    Construction of the east-west corridor will be completed in three phases:

    • Phase 1: Chamkani to Balahisar Fort
    • Phase 2: Cantonment to Aman Chowk
    • Phase 3: University to Hayatabad

    The entire road structure along the east-west corridor will also be reconstructed, and will include a new bicycle lane. The number of traffic lanes along the GT Road will also be reduced, leading to what will be intended as a more pedestrian-friendly street. The project is being built concurrent to the Peshawar Ring Road, which will redirect heavy vehicles away from the city centre.

    Good development though, but why did they opt for "Jungla Bus" ? lol. I am not a PML N supporter but this is indeed a good service. We should give credit where it is due.

    Didn't the PTI government fix (or atleast try to fix) the police and education system of the province before focusing on metro bus. Meanwhile Shahbaz Sharif's method of fixing the police is by giving them postman uniform :lol:

    I know it is hard for you to utilize your brain, but please compare lengths of the metro systems and coverage area in each city and you will realize why Peshawar costs more.

    Buses are not enough for size of population Pakistan has. I went to see Metro in Lahore and they were so over crowded that I couldn't even get in.
    With a bit more investment you can build tram (light rail) tracks on these same metro tracks.

    Wow the speed of construction is amazing. Just goes to show what Pakistanis can achieve if there is minimal corruption.

    Exactly they have to start rail metro rather than old concept of Bus metro.In India already 10 cities have rail metro and many other cities construction going on and end of this year there will be 12 metro rail cities including Hyderabad metro and Nagpur metro

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urban_rail_transit_in_India#Rapid_transit

    Moreover every year India inaugurating 2 or 3 Metro rail cities, next year Noida metro and Ghaziabad Metro
