Islamabad: As the opening of the Green Line Metro is anticipated to take place today, the city managers want to operate feeder buses on several internal routes of the city to ensure that inhabitants may access metro buses (Wednesday).
On Tuesday, Senior officials from the Capital Development Authority (CDA) met with experts from the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics (PIDE) and the National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) to examine the feeder service and its suggested viability.
The civic agency reviewed plans for creating a feasibility study on feeder routes during a meeting that was presided over by CDA Chairman Amer Ali Ahmed and attended by a few faculty members from PIDE and NUST.
CDA will be launching the Green Line metro bus service from Bhara Kahu to PIMS and the Blue Line service from Koral to PIMS. These bus services will operate in mixed traffic on the already open routes, and CDA will later build exclusive bus lanes for them.
Post-inauguration, both bus routes will operate continuously between Bhara Kahu and PIMS and Koral and PIMS, respectively, unless suitable and designated bus stations are not built.
Bus station development is now being done by the National Logistic Cell (NLC).
