    Default Bus-train is back on the Islamabad's Roads!!!

    The ITP launched a bus-train service, initially follows the route starting from Pak Secretariat to G-11 Markaz via G-10 Markaz, G-9 Markaz (Karachi Company), F-8 Turn, Blue Area, Express Chowk and Ayub Chowk to facilitate the commuters. The fare is only Rs10(Courtesy:The News, Sep 02, 2008)

    This is the same train which had been used to ply beteween twin cities in 1989-92 and restored it in 2000 for SAF games.
    The bus-train contains 4 coaches (including engine) and can carry more then 120 commutors at a time easily. It's speed is however slow then standered city bus, as it can hardly gain 65 km/h on a smooth, straight and clear road. Ride is even not bad!
    One can see it and ride it in office times only(in the morning and office's closing time on this route)
    Note: This is NOT the recent picture, one can post it's recent pictures if he capture, because my cam is out of order!

    This seems a nice effort but it is recommended to start regular train for commuters between Pindi and ISB...

    This is the only one bus-train of Pakistan and it's the old one.
    Now I'm going to show you a modren bus-train is being used by many develped cities. Pak Govt should also allow and encourage the duty free import of these kinda vehicles for commuter's relief and to give a good look to our cities!

    Things will never be as you imagine, so you're better off not seeing them. / Reality can't compete with imagination.

    @cmisb
    Dear it's old but not so bad as 1965 model smokey Bedford buses!
    @funkycapricon
    I agree!
    You know, CDA has been working on project to run CNG buses in city for 2 years.
    But they doesn't seem to be serious.
    YOU are 100% RIGHT! Poor transport system, like hell type wagons and old minibuses and meter-less poor condition taxicabs are the reasons of traffic jam
    Safety 1st!
    Always Must!
