ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif will inaugurate the multi-billion Metro Bus rupee project on June 4 (tomorrow).

The track of the metro bus service will start from Flashman’s Hotel Chowk on Murree road and end at Pak Secretariat, covering a total distance of about 23 kilometres.



In order to ensure better accessibility for the residents of the twin cities, 24 metro bus stations have been constructed along the 23 kilometre route. Out of these, ten are on Rawalpindi’s Murree road while the remaining 14 are in Islamabad. The bus fare for a 20-minute travel would be Rs20.




Some added incentives include a car parking and air conditioned sitting arrangements for passengers. The bus service would be monitored by a central control system.
