Earlier, the National Highway Authority and CDA jointly proposed to establish a service identical to the Punjab Mass Transit Authority and to run the operations of the metro bus service in the capital.
However, the Orange Line Metro Bus Service operations that covered the area from Peshawar Mor to New International Airport were handed over to the CDA by the federal government.
Additionally, two metro services, green and blue lines, started to operate between PIMS hospital to Bara Kahu and Koral Chowk to PIMS hospital.
The service started on the instructions of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, and later its operations were handed over to the CDA. At present, it is handled temporarily by Faisal Movers.
It is important to mention that the CDA has also been engaged in obtaining buses and running 13 feeders linking different parts of the twin cities to the metro bus routes.
Currently, the CDA is managing all the operations related to transit service with limited staff and has planned to establish a dedicated wing headed by the Deputy Director General to manage the operations of the metro bus service.
It was also shared that the authority will be hiring 78 individuals on contract for this wing.
Furthermore, the road authority has contacted two consultants responsible for a feasibility study to develop a mass transit system that will operate between Rawat and Faisal Masjid and Bara Kahu and PIMS hospital.
The Consultants will also conduct a feasibility study for developing transport Infrastructure
