CDA to launch new transport service

SLAMABAD: Capital Development Authority (CDA) is launching new transport service to mitigate problems of commuters in the capital.

Sources in CDA said on Monday that two transport companies have already been short listed for plying buses on four important routes. He said their requests for proposal will be approved by CDA Board and the project is likely to be materialize in three to four months.

The new transport service is particularly focused to facilitate working class, students and particularly women, he said.

The routes which have been selected include Route-1 from Secretariat to Faizabad via Murree Road, Route-2 from Barakahu to Aabpara, Route-3 from Faizabad to F-11 via Blue Area and Route-4 Sector I-11 to Secretariat.

He said special bus terminals and stops will be built to alleviate transport problems, adding each bus will left the terminal with an interval of five minutes and around 15,000 passengers would use this transport system on daily basis.

However, replying to a question on CNG bus service, he said the project is delayed due to fuel issue and non-availability of CNG stations for huge buses.
