Islamabad: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has said that it had imported new orange buses from China for a new route in Islamabad.

CDA spokesperson Rana Shakeel Asghar maintained that several new orange buses from China were already in Islamabad for use.

“In the next phase, two new routes will be added. First route is from Barakahu to PIMs (bus stops) and the second from Rawat to PIMS,” he said in an announcement.

He informed that the road extension work from Rawat to Koral areas was underway, “so we will initially run the route from Koral to PIMS. These two routes with the Blue Line and Green Line buses will be linked with Metro Bus Service at PIMS.”

On the special instruction of the Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, he added, “we rationalized the Peshawar Mor to Airport route in one week.”

Moreover, Asghar remarked that the CDA was working on feeder routes and planning to launch the shuttle services from the villages to the terminals.

He contended that the CDA was making all-out efforts to provide comfortable, quality and economical transport facilities to the residents of twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

“The new transport system is being established on modern lines for coping the increasing pressure of transport and solving the problems like traffic jams,” he informed.

He added: “The route from Peshawar Mor to New Islamabad Airport has already been linked through Orange Line Metro Service and the project is running successfully.”
