Thirty E-Buses in Islamabad Launching This Week - ahgroup-pk

ISLAMABAD: Islamabad will most likely launch thirty E-Buses this week, which arrived last month.

The Inauguration Ceremony is Expected to be held on July 5, and either the Prime Minister or the Interior Minister is anticipated to attend.

An official said: “The preparations are in progress for holding the inauguration ceremony on July 5; there are chances that the interior minister will inaugurate this bus service.”

The official said the CDA plans to ply more buses in Islamabad as 70 more vehicles are expected to arrive from Karachi. After being manufactured, 60 more buses will be coming to Islamabad from China.

These buses will ply the two routes, including


* PIMS to Bari Imam

The first route will start from Nust and end at Pims after passing through G-11 Markaz, G-10 Markaz, G-9 Markaz, and G-8 Markaz. It will have 13 stops, and a bus will reach a stop after every 10 minutes.

The second route will start from Pims and conclude at Bari Imam after passing through G-7, G-6, Melody, Aabpara, Ataturk Road, Serena Hotel, Foreign Office, Radio Pakistan, and the Diplomatic Enclave.

These vehicles are the property of CDA’s contractor, National Radio and Telecommunication Corporation (NRTC), a subsidiary of the Ministry of Defence. The CDA will pay Rs306 to Rs331 per kilometer in fare and provide logistics to the contractor.

At the start, 30 buses will operate from the Convention Centre, where the CDA has installed a charging station with six charging points. The CDA has also set up a facility at the H-9 metro depot for 70 other buses.

Meanwhile, the CDA is also constructing bus depots, one each at;

* Zero Point

* I-9

* Tramri

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif urged the CDA to start the service. As a result, the civic agency engaged the NRTC to procure e-buses from an international firm that manufactures buses in China.
