Islamabad, April 22 (INP): Ministry of Transport, Sindh Mass Transit Authority (SMTA) formally launched the People’s Bus Service (PBS) in Mirpur Khas district of the province to provide people with cheap, green, and hassle-free commuting, Gwadar Pro reported.

After Karachi, Hyderabad, and Sukkur districts, Chinese buses have now commenced operations under the PBS in Mirpur Khan, known as the city of mangoes.

“In line with the PPP leadership’s vision, the Sindh Government will soon spread  PBS in every district of the province,” said Sindh Senior Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon.

In the first phase, the buses cover the main route between Mirpur Khan Bus Stand to Jarwari Shakh and cover areas like Ring Road, Sindh Revenue Board, DC Office, Charminar Chowk, Station Road, Old Buses Stand and Chandani Chowk and other adjoining areas.

The buses, manufactured by Higer Company in China, have been imported and are fully compliant with environmental protocols.

These 12-meter-long buses have a capacity of 34 passengers, with two special seats for differently-abled individuals.

PBS is not only providing greater mobility and calm commuting to passengers but also contributing to women’s empowerment in transportation.

This is evident in Karachi, where women are included as drivers of urban pink buses.
