The Green Line bus service in Balochistan’s provincial capital and a few other places seems to be almost done. On Sunday, Chief Minister Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo said full-scale service would start on July 17.
“The Green Line Bus Service is about to be started by the Government of Balochistan, and test runs will begin on July 13,” the chief minister said in a tweet.
“After a year of hard work, we are happy to bring Quetta the long-awaited and much-needed high-quality public transport system,” he said, adding that it will start running at total capacity on Monday, July 17. The chief minister said that a person from the general public “who uses public transport often” will be at the opening event.
Balochistan’s transport minister, Dr. Muhammad Aslam Baloch, said at the beginning of March that 16 buses would run between Sariab Road and Baleli as a first step.
He said that the government was taking effective steps to give people the “best possible” travel options. He also noted that this service would be expanded to other roads in Quetta and other towns in the province.
This bus service will be available for all people, especially the ones who cannot afford to travel on services like Careem and Uber. This Green Line bus service will soon be starting off on 17th July 2023.
