Previously these buses were running inside DHA only but probably due to less profit they have shelved that route. Now they are running on route no 5 (City railway station to Phase VI - DHA).

Route: Railway station, Shimla pahari, Queens road, Jail road, Gulberg, Cavalry ground, RA bazar, Defence mor, Ghazi chowk, Y block market, Lalik Jan chowk, LUMS, Wateen chowk, Nawaz Sharif interchange, Phase VI terminal.

Integrated transport: 200 buses to ply Metro feeder routes next month


Quote:
LAHORE: Two hundred new pubic buses will hit city roads the next month.

In February, the Punjab Mass-transit Authority (PMA) had inked an agreement with Daewoo Pakistan Express Bus Service for the procurement, operation and maintenance of 200 feeder buses for the Lahore Metro Bus service.

PMA Operations General Manager Syed Uzair Shah said the new buses were in the final stage of manufacturing and would arrive in the country in August. He said in the first phase the buses would run on 14 feeder routes spread over 123 kilometres. “Later, more buses will be inducted to the mass-transit network,” he said.

Shah said the authority aimed to provide public transport to all citizens within 500 metres of their locations. “Induction of 200 buses will help improve integrated bus operations in the City.”

Earlier, it had been announced that the buses would ply on city roads in April. The project was delayed owing to disagreement over terms of the contract between the authority and the operator.

Daewoo Pakistan is investing Rs3 billion for the procurement of the 200 buses including 162 big (70 seats) and 38 small buses. The company says it plans to expand the fleet later.

The company will operate the buses on the feeder routes of the Metro Bus service and bill the PMA on a per-kilometre basis.

The authority will pay Rs165 and Rs140 a kilometre for big and small buses, respectively.

Initially, 200,000 passengers will travel on the buses daily. According to estimates, each bus can transport 1,000 passengers a day.

Official documents indicate that the buses will be equipped with Automated Fare Collection and Bus Scheduling System (AFC-BSS) and GPS tracking devices.

The operator will set up card (ticket) sale and recharge points at 22 localities on the feeder routes as specified by the authority. The sale points will remain open during the bus operation time – tentatively estimated at 18 hours a day.

The operator will provide 15 handheld electronic ticket validators for spot checking, to facilitate PMA assigned ticket inspectors.

The agreement has been signed for six years. It might be extended with the consent of the parties.

The authority plans to run as many as 1,400 standard or mini-buses on 104 routes covering 951 kilometres.

Metro feeder routes: 200 buses to reach Lahore in mid-Sept

By Imran Adnan

Published: August 10, 2016

As many as 35 articulated buses to be used for the Multan Metro Bus Service have reached the country, Daewoo Pakistan spokesperson said.

LAHORE:
As many as 200 buses to be run on feeder routes of the Metro Bus Service are set to reach the city by mid-September, a Daewoo Pakistan spokesperson told The Express Tribune on Tuesday.

He said an order had already been placed for these buses. The company would run these buses, 162 big-sized and 38 small-sized, under an agreement with the Punjab Mass-transit Authority (PMA) on 14 routes spread over 123 kilometers. The agreement has been signed for a six-year period. It can be extended with consent of both parties.

The spokesperson said Daewoo Pakistan was spending Rs3 billion for the procurement of these buses. He said that the Punjab Mass-transit Authority (PMA) would pay the company Rs165 (for big-sized buses) and Rs140 (for small-sized buses) per kilometre for operating these buses. The company estimates that around 200,000 passengers will travel on the feeder routes every day. The buses will be equipped with Automated Fare Collection and Bus Scheduling System (AFC-BSS) and global positioning system (GPS) tracking devices.

Official documents available with The Tribune state that the company will set up card (ticket) sale and recharge points at 22 locations along the feeder routes. These points will remain open during operations hours – estimated to be around 18 in a day. The company will also arrange 15 handheld electronic ticket validators for spot checking by ticket inspectors.

Earlier, PMA Operations General Manager Syed Uzair Shah had announced that buses for feeder routes would reach the city in August. He had said that the company hoped to arrange public transport facilities within 500 metres of each resident of the city. The authority planned to run around 1,400 standard or mini-buses on 104 routes covering 951 km, he had said.

35 buses for Multan Metro arrive in country

As many as 35 articulated buses to be used for the Multan Metro Bus Service have reached the country, Daewoo Pakistan spokesperson said.

He said the 18-meter long articulated buses would start operations as soon as the construction of metro bus track was complete. “It is likely that the project will be inaugurated on the Independence Day,” he said.

LAHORE: At least 200 new public buses have reached Karachi on Monday for the feeder routes of Lahore Metro Bus service.

Punjab Mass-transit Authority Operations General Manager Syed Uzair Shah told The Express Tribune the new buses had been imported in Pakistan and will start plying the roads of Lahore in a couple of weeks.

Shah said the bus operator, Daewoo Pakistan Express Bus Service, will require around a week for customs clearance and other operational formalities, while another two weeks were required by the relevant authority to install e-ticketing equipment in the buses.

Initially, these buses would run on 14 feeder routes of Lahore Metro Bus Service, covering 123 kilometres.

Later, more buses would be inducted in phases once Lahore Orange Line Metro Train becomes operational, he added.

Changing modes

After the induction of new buses, Shah said, the relevant authority was expecting a dramatic decrease in motorcycles on the city roads. He said the authority would integrate ticketing systems of both the Lahore Metro Bus service and feeder buses.

He said the PMA had a vision to provide reliable and comfortable public transport facility to all citizens within just 500 metres from their place of work or residence.

The PMA had inked an agreement with Daewoo Pakistan in February for procurement, operation and maintenance of 200 feeder buses for integrated bus operations in Lahore.

Earlier, it was announced that these buses would hit city roads in April, but the project was delayed owing to disagreement between the authority and the operator on contractual terms. Later, the issue was resolved amicably and the operator ordered new buses.

Input

A spokesperson of Daewoo Pakistan told The Express Tribune the company was investing Rs3 billion in the procurement of 200 new buses, including 162 large and 38 small buses, and had plans to expand its bus fleet at a later stage.

The company would own and operate these buses on the feeder routes of the Lahore Metro Bus service and bill the PMA on per kilometre basis. The authority will pay Rs165 and Rs140 per kilometre for big and small buses, respectively.

Initially, 200,000 passengers would be benefited daily from the new buses as estimates suggest each bus can transport around a thousand passengers per day.

Official documents indicate these buses will be equipped with Automated Fare Collection and Bus Scheduling System (AFC-BSS) and GPS tracking devices. The operator will set up card (ticket) sale and recharge points at 22 localities on the feeder routes in the city as specified by the authority. These sale points will remain open during the hours the bus will operate – tentatively decided as 18 hours a day. The operator will also provide 15 handheld electronic ticket validators for spot checking, to facilitate PMA assigned ticket inspectors.

The documents show the agreement is signed for six years, which can be extended with mutual consent. The authority has plans to run 1,400 standard or mini buses on 104 routes with a route length of 951km.

In one year, 100,000 tourists Sightsee Lahore



Quote:
LAHORE: As a city, Lahore has plenty to offer and tourists have been taking in the sights and sounds aboard double-decker buses over the last year. The initiative, rather aptly called Sightseeing Lahore, has completed its first year.

The Tourism Development Corporation of Punjab (TDCP) has already acquired three more buses to expand the operation. New buses are expected to reach Lahore in January after which 325 passengers can be shown around the city in one go.

TDCP spokesman said Sightseeing Lahore has become a new attraction for visitors, tourist and locals alike. The corporation has arranged sightseeing tours for around 100,000 people over the last year, including local and foreign tourists, schoolchildren as well as corporate clients.

The service has risen in popularity; proof of which is the fact that schoolchildren from Karachi, Islamabad and Gilgit-Baltistan have been lining for a ride on the double-decker buses. The spokesman said the corporation was getting numerous inquiries over the service from different parts of the country. TDCP has hosted a large number of tourists from Karachi, Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Peshawar.

After inducting more buses, the corporation will increase the frequency of tours. There are proposals to add new routes to Sightseeing Lahore, although a final decision is yet to be made.

The corporation started Sightseeing Lahore after evaluating similar services in cities like London, Dubai and Budapest. The two buses initially imported are tailor made and have the capacity to accommodate 67 passengers each. The vehicles are equipped with a public address system so that guides can talk the tourists can talk the passengers through the sites.

Training for drivers begins for Metro feeder buses


LAHORE: Drivers are being trained on the 200 new buses that will ply on feeder routes of Lahore’s Metro Bus service from next month, The Express Tribune learnt on Tuesday.

Official documents indicate these buses will be equipped with Automated Fare Collection and Bus Scheduling System (AFC-BSS) and GPS tracking devices. The operator will set up card (ticket) sale and recharge points at 22 localities along the feeder routes.

These sale points will remain open during bus operation time – tentatively decided as 18 hours a day. The operator will also provide 15 handheld electronic ticket checkers for spot checking, to facilitate the Punjab Mass-transit Authority-assigned ticket inspectors.

Daewoo Pakistan spokesperson said the company was training bus drivers as the passenger buses were ready to start operation by mid-December. The PMA is likely to complete the bus shelters by that time as well, he added.

PMA Operations General-Manager Syed Uzair Shah said the Lahore commissioner was responsible for the construction of bus stations but the authority was installing high-definition CCTV cameras at all bus shelters along the feeder routes for real-time monitoring of bus operations.

Shah said he could not confirm the inauguration date for the new public transport scheme, but he was optimistic the new buses would start running sometime in December.

The bus service would be formally inaugurated by the Punjab chief minister.

Initially these buses will run on 14 feeder routes of the Lahore Metro Bus, covering a total length of 123 kilometres. More buses will be inducted later in a phased manner, once the Lahore Metro Train’s Orange Line becomes operational.

The PMA expects dramatic decrease in motorcyclists and air pollution in Lahore as the bus service will significantly improve connectivity. The authority has already made arrangements to integrate ticketing systems of both the Lahore Metro Bus service and feeder buses that will enable passengers to travel on a single ticket on both buses.

Shah said the authority envisioned providing reliable and comfortable public transport facility to all citizens within 500 metres from their place of work or residence.

The PMA had inked an agreement with Daewoo Pakistan in February for procurement, operation and maintenance of 200 feeder buses for integrated bus operations in Lahore. The buses were to hit the city roads in April but the project was delayed, owing to disagreements between the authority and the operator. The issue was resolved amicably and the operator ordered new buses.

The Daewoo Pakistan spokesperson told The Express Tribune the company invested Rs3 billion for the procurement of the 200 buses, including 162 large and 38 small buses.

The company would own and operate these buses on the feeder routes and bill the PMA on per kilometre basis. The authority will pay Rs165 and Rs140 per kilometre for large and small buses, respectively. Initially, 200,000 passengers would benefit from the new buses on daily basis.
