Sindh Govt to Launch New Electric Bus Service in Karachi

The Sindh government has announced the launch of a new bus service in Karachi that will include a ‘fully eco-friendly’ fleet of electric vehicles.

The Sindh government has announced the launch of a new bus service in Karachi that will include a ‘fully eco-friendly’ fleet of electric vehicles.

According to the report of many newspapers, Sindh Information and Transport Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon shared brief details of the latest initiative on social media.

He said in a tweet that the Department of Transport, Government of Sindh is going to start a new bus service in Karachi, these are Pakistan’s first electric vehicles which are completely eco-friendly, from tomorrow we are going to start a test drive in the city.

The announcement of the new plan by the Pakistan People’s Party government has come when new transport projects are underway in Karachi. At the same time, new routes have been launched one after another under the People’s Bus Service.

However, doubts remain about the sustainability of electric buses as last year the initiative did not last long.

A source said that the Sindh government had taken a similar initiative in March 2021 and launched the country’s first electric bus project in Karachi with the promise that the number of these eco-friendly vehicles would reach 100 by the end of the year.

Sources further said that an electric bus was started to run from Tower to Sohrab Goth and the fare was set at a minimum of Rs 10 per stop, but this proved unsustainable and this single route was also discontinued.
