KP Chief Minister Mahmood Khan along with Sindh Governor Imran Ismail and Defence Minister Pervez Khattak were present at the launch of the project.
The Rs70 billion BRT project consists of a 27.5km main track and 31 stations while the length of the feeder routes is 62km and has 146 stops. The main track is connected to seven different areas of the city so that the people can travel from their areas in small buses to reach the main route.
Three mega commercial plazas would be completed in June 2021, but the bus parking areas are ready. About 340,000 common people will enjoy a safe, comfortable and affordable travel in luxury buses on daily basis.
