Awaz District Forum has made few proposals for improving Metro Bus Service in twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad, says a press release.

After appreciating government of Punjab’s initiative of launching Metro Bus Service, the Awaz District Forum office-bearers including President Lubna Arshad and general secretary Chaudhry Ilyas during a peace rally said that government should ply a separate bus for women after every three buses.

The rally was attended by members of civil society, including Hina Akram and Samina Khalid from Aurat Foundation, women councillors Razia Sultana, Yasmin Chaudhry, Kausar Daultana and Rifat Sultana.

They said that the number of seats for women should also be increased in every bus.

They said that separate bus should be plied for women during peak hours particularly office and school timings. They also said that 20 per cent seats should be reserved for women in every bus.

The participants of the rally termed travelling by Metro Bus Service a safe way of transportation for women.
