In Karachi on Friday, Sindh’s Minister of Information and Transport Sharjeel Inam Memon launched Pakistan’s first electric bus service.
Memon told the media that the bus service is the best and most cheap form of public transportation after launching it. He said that starting today, anyone travelling to the airport by bus will be able to do so (Friday).
According to him, an environmentally friendly Peoples Electric Bus service would start running through Khayaba-e-Ittehad from Tank Chowk in Malir Cantt to Clock Tower Roundabout in Sea View.
He explained that the charge was fixed at Rs. 50 to ensure a cheap and comfortable experience. He claimed that there are more than 30 seats in the electric buses, including spaces designated for those with impairments.
Ten electric cars would first run between the Airport and the Clock Tower, according to him. He claimed that a solar bus charging system had been built. Each bus, according to him, can travel 240 kilometres on a single charge.
Memon claimed in a tweet that the Sindh government, which is run by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), always places a high priority on growth, progress, and prosperity.
Last month, the Sindh government made the decision to provide electric taxi services for Karachi locals, including pink cabs operated by women for female clients.
Memon said that the blue and pink taxis would be used to launch the taxi service in two stages. The pink taxis will be outfitted with cameras and a monitoring system to improve safety and security.
According to him, the development of electric transportation services aims to be user-friendly, safe, affordable, and ecologically beneficial.
