Karachi Transformation Plan

Minister for Planning Asad Umar has said that the buses will run for 15 days on probation. “The buses will start running regularly from December 25,” he added.

Meanwhile, the project is said to be completed with Rs 35 billion per the agreement between the Sindh government and the federal government. The Sindh government had requested the Federal government to take responsibility for its maintenance for three years.

The minister said, “Sindh government would collect the revenue of first three years and transfer it to the federal government as per accord.” However, the federal government would provide the subsidy to the passengers, he added.

He said this project would be profitable for the country, and the fare would be from Rs 15 to Rs 55. Also, he recommended that the provincial government review fare rates on an annual basis to make this project successful.
