Karachi’s Green Line BRT (Bus Rapid Transit System) is now fully operational with 80 Buses & 22 Stations.
Good news for residents in Karachi! The Green Line BRT is now operational to commute between Surjani Town and Numaish Chowrangi from 7 am to 10 pm. The maximum one-way fare is Rs55, and the minimum is Rs15. The capacity of each bus is 200 to 250 passengers, and they comprise a complete system from wheelchairs to USB ports.
Karachi is the 3rd largest city in the world and the largest city of Pakistan, and its transportation system was a big concern as it is the country’s financial epicentre. In Nov 2020, an Internationally acclaimed magazine, Bloomberg, declared Karachi’s transportation system as the worst kind globally. Since then, this is the first development that has come to light.
Citizens who travelled in the Greenline say that the experience from the local buses is much better. The staff is cooperative, the buses are clean, and there is no additional hassle.
The bus service can be availed from 11 stations built in Surjani, Abdullah Chowk, Do Minute Chowrangi, Power House, Nagan Chowrangi, Jumma Bazar, Haideri, Board Office, Nazimabad Number One, Sanitary Market and Numaish.
Automatic ticketing systems, modern lifts will facilitate passengers at every bus station. Details regarding the arrival of the bus and departure of the bus will be up on digital screens that have been installed.
To maintain safety, 900 cameras have been installed to monitor the Green Line bus project to meet the contemporary time requirements.
Earlier on, the local transport here was once among the most modern in the world. Due to mismanagement, ongoing corruption, and clashes of interest between different parties, the city’s advancement halted back in the 1990s. Let’s hope from here onwards, we witness such facilities open in the city of lights.
