Karachi is a huge city. It is so huge that you can travel in it for two hours and still not reach the end of it. With this size also comes a massive amount of traffic for the city. If you are caught out in the traffic anywhere between 6 pm to 8 pm, you are stuck. You will stay in the traffic for the duration and reach home all tired. However, to make transit easier, Karachi has had a bus service introduced. This is the red bus service as well as the white bus service.

These buses have designated routes that run through various parts of the city. No matter which area you wish to go, there will be a route present for you. These buses are marked by their route numbers and are running after every 10-15 minutes or so. You do not have to wait too long for one to arrive.

The Fare

What is most interesting is that the fare of these air-conditioned well-maintained buses does not exceed more than Rs.100/- per passenger. If your stop is nearer from where you were picked, your fare will be Rs.50/-. If you intend to travel far, then the fare will be Rs.100/-. This seems like an extremely reasonable rate considering how expensive fuel is.
