Public transport

April 04, 2017

A majority of people in Karachi use public transport since it is economical and helps reduce traffic congestion. The transport system of the city displays a sad picture of mismanagement. Insufficient number of public buses has badly affected the lives of residents. Irregular schedule causes frequent delays and long waits. During peak hours, public buses are always overcrowded. Passengers have to cover the long distances while standing. When motorcycle-rickshaws were introduced, the majority of people were relieved. However, the ban on these rickshaws has further increased problems for residents.

In addition to this, the available transport is in bad condition. Seats and windows are broken adding more difficulties to passengers. Lack of maintenance of vehicles is another problem that needs to be taken care of. . The government is requested to provide a secure transport system to the people of the city.
