The government of Islamabad is working on a comprehensive plan for a new kind of contemporary transportation for the people who live in the federal capital.The project foundation will reportedly be laid by the prime minister, Shehbaz Sharif, who reportedly gave the municipal management instructions to create the design.
The federal capital’s prominent university’s scholars designed the mass transit system, which will initially have 13 lines but eventually have more. Furthermore, as part of the project, contemporary bus and station terminals will be constructed, and the first phase will see the operation of 200 Chinese buses on 13 routes.
