That first pic in the last post... That's one happy looking man!

All these pics can get not-so-fun for us non-locals. Now. In 20 years time all these pictures will be pretty sweet to have since the city and the transit system will have developed and changed.

Are there any maps showing how the system is planned to look when fully built out? Or maybe one showing the next couple of phases?

72% of Pakistanis have heard/read about the Metro Bus; 77% think it is a good initiative. GILANI POLL/GALLUP PAKISTAN


According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 72% of Pakistanis have heard/read about the Metro Bus; 77% think it is a good initiative.

A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Recently, the Punjab Government has launched the Metro Bus Service in Lahore. Have you heard or read about it?” Responding to this, 72% said yes and 28% said no.

The respondents who had heard/read about the Metro Bus were then asked “Some people think it is a good initiative, while others think it is a not a good initiative and is a waste of money. What is your opinion on this?” Responding to this, 77% said they think it is a good initiative and 18% said they think it is not a good initiative. However, 5% did not give a response.

For one BRT line, that's a huge awareness level. Especially since it isn't just for the metropolitan area.

Need more buses already? That's a lot of people taking the bus. I wonder what traffic is like on the streets it runs over compared to before the BRT was built.

I think its because its a first of its kind system in Pakistan. Plus its been highly publicized too by the Media and the political party which came up with it.

Transparency International says no corruption in buildings this line!

LAHORE – Transparency International has released a report, stating that prima facie the Metro Bus Project was completed at a cost of Rs 29.078 billion. Moreover, two contracts of annual cost of Rs 1.2018 billion for metro bus supply and operation and security were also awarded in a transparent manner and on the basis of a competitive bidding as per Punjab Procurement Rules 2009.

In its report, Transparency International says it considers that two unsolicited contracts were awarded to M/S Platform, as stated by LDA, on the basis of a competitive bidding as per Punjab Procurement Rules 2009.

According to the details given by the LDA authorities, earlier, the Punjab government had requested Transparency International to review and comment on the procurement process of the Metro Bus Project and award of contracts. An MoU was signed for the implementation of the “Integrity Pact” on 28th February 2013.

On demand of Transparency International, Lahore Development Authority also provided a copy of the NAB Contract Evaluation Forms for the 27 contracts awarded under this project and details of infrastructure procurements of 25 contracts.

Meanwhile, DGPR also issued a handout on behalf of the provincial govt which revealed that Transparency International verified implementation of Metro Bus Project in a transparent manner. The govt also claimed the Transparency International Pakistan in its report had observed that relevant rules and regulations had been adhered to in the award of contracts for Metro Bus supply, maintenance and security.

It may be mentioned that on February 28, 2013, the Punjab government invited Transparency International to judge the transparency in the award of contracts for Metro Bus Project. In response to the demand of Transparency International, Lahore Development Authority provided a copy of the NAB Contract Evaluation Forms for the 27 contracts awarded under this project and details of infrastructure procurements of 25 contracts. The report has also evaluated the total cost of the project which is around Rs 30 billion.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Punjab govt has said that by authenticating transparency of Metro Bus Project of the Punjab government, Transparency International had silenced those who were unjustifiably criticising the project for their nefarious designs. The spokesman has further said the evolution of the cost of the project by Transparency International had also exposed those who were making exaggerations in this regard
