BRT SERVICE RESUMED

Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) Peshawar service has been reopened for the general public, said spokesperson Trans Peshawar on Monday.

The service which was temporary halted on 9th and 10th Muharram now has been restored for the general public. Residents can travel via BRT service to their desired destinations from 6am to 10pm, said the spokesperson.

The spokesman said BRT Peshawar is providing best travel facilities to the citizens of Peshawar and those who came from other areas.

Peshawar was declared among the highly sensitive districts from security perspective during Muharram.

Since BRT is the largest project of Peshawar which affects tens of thousands of people, the administration had considered it suitable to close it for two days to avoid any possible security issues.

Earlier on August 13, Prime Minister Imran Khan along with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan had inaugurated the Peshawar Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project.

Defence Minister Pervez Khattak and other KPK government officials were present at the launching ceremony.

Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information and Local Government Kamran Bangash had told media that 360 bicycles for both men and women have been arranged, besides buses, on the 27km bus rapid transit (BRT) track.

Bangash added that the project would provide relief to people in the provincial capital in terms of better transport.

Detailing about the project further, Bangash said the ZU-BRT uses a third-generation technology system, which will benefit the passengers.

He added options of lifting and bus services will be provided for special persons as well.
