Public transportation in Pakistan had always been a concern when it came to the safety and comfort of passengers until the Punjab Mass transit Authority (PMA) introduced modern means. Whether it is Lahore Metro Bus, Lahore Speedo Bus, Multan Metro Bus, Pakistan Metro Bus (Rawalpindi/Islamabad), or Orange Train Lahore, credit goes to the previous government’s efforts and consistency to finally provide well-reputed modes of transport to the citizens of Punjab. In addition, Karachi Green Line Metro (Bus Rapid Transit System) was also initiated by the previous government (PML-N’s government). Here is all about the Karachi Green Line BRT System.
If we discuss Lahore Orange Train, this one is the best so far as the first driverless train service in Pakistan. Initiated in May 2014, by the Government of Pakistan and the Government of China as a gesture of friendly relations between these two countries. After 6 years of process and a cost of $ 1.7 billion, it was finally inaugurated on 25th October 2020. This entire operation and manufacturing will be under the control of Guangzhou Metro Group, Norinco International, and Daewoo Express.
