In a quest to give hassle-free and less costly transportation services to the people of Bahawalpur, the government of Punjab has introduced all new Speedo Bus service in the city. It is a 12 fleet bus service, which would provide inexpensive and fully air-conditioned travelling services to the locals. Moreover, 24 trained bus drivers would run these buses on different routes. The drivers are trained as to how to deal and behave with passengers during the travel. Additionally, they are required to be in their uniforms while carrying out their duties.
Furthermore, Daewoo Service will provide technical assistance to Speedo Bus service. It is pertinent to mention here that in order to attract the masses the government has announced to give free rides on the first two days of the inauguration, which in my opinion is a great strategy.
According to the local transport authority PKR 10, 20 0r 30 would be charged by the bus services depending upon the distance traveller travel.
Speedo Bus service stops are mentioned below:
- General Bus Station
- Fareed Gate
- Dring Stadium
- Karachi Morr
- Bindra Pulli
- One Unit Chowk
- DC Office Chowk
- Technology College
- Mailaywali Gali
- Baghdad Campus Islamia University
The bus service was inaugurated by Mayor Bahawalpur Aqeel Najam Hashmi and Deputy Commissioner Rana Saleem Afzal. For the past one year, almost all the local governments, as well as federal government, are trying to give excellent transportation services to the people of Pakistan such as in Lahore the provincial government is developing Orange Line Metro Train Project to cater the need of locals. Similarly, new bus service would be launched in Karachi soon.
In my opinion, these recent transportation service initiatives by the governments are quite remarkable as they are the need of the hour.
