The electric bus service in Karachi will restart today (Monday), after being interrupted for over two months owing to a malfunction in their chargers.
Sindh Information and Transport Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon revealed this at a press conference yesterday.
“The chargers for electric buses have arrived, and buses will once again operate on the roads of Karachi,” stated the Sindh transport minister.
Memon stated that the provincial government was always working to upgrade public transport in the city. “Another fleet of new buses will arrive in the city today,” he said.
In terms of the smartphone app, Memon stated that the recently introduced PBS app was operating effectively, allowing Peoples Bus Service passengers to track the progress of buses in real-time.
It’s worth noting that the service of electric buses on two routes was halted about two months ago when the EV chargers “began malfunctioning.”
