After Lahore and Islamabad, Multan is all set to welcome the much-hyped and much-talked about, Metro Bus! Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has finally inaugurated the Metro bus service in the city and it will only charge PKR 20 as traveling fare.

It is reported that PKR 28.88 billion was the total cost of the project.

Nawaz Sharif too took a ride around the town in the launch ceremony.



As many as 35 buses will provide transportation to around 95000 residents of Multan.

The Multan Metro route is

  • 18.5km long
  • has a 2.5km elevated section
  • 21 bus stations
  • 14 stations at elevated and seven stations at ground level

The project was kickstarted in 2015 and was completed within a year, despite financial constraints.

An ecstatic Shehbaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz took to Twitter to announce the news!
