Sharjeel Inam Memon, Sindh Information Minister, announced the commencement of Pakistan’s first electric bus service in Karachi on Friday.
The minister stated in a tweet that the bus service will be available to residents of the city from today. “This service will begin from Tank Chowk Malir Cantt to Clock Tower Roundabout, Sea View Defense using Khayaban e Ittehad,” he added, adding that airport travellers would be able to use it as well.
These electric buses are ecologically benign, according to the Sindh Mass Transit Authority, because they are powered by solar energy. Furthermore, the tickets for these bases will be inexpensive while providing a comfortable experience.
“The Sindh government of the PPP is always focused on growth, progress, and prosperity,” Memon remarked in a tweet Wednesday. The Sindh government agreed last month to start electric taxi services for Karachi residents, including pink-colored taxis driven by women for female clients.
Memon stated that the service would be launched in two parts, with blue and pink cabs. To guarantee safety and security, the pink cabs will be outfitted with cameras and a monitoring system. The transition to electric transportation services seeks to be environmentally friendly, safe, inexpensive, and comfortable for citizens.
