2K ka akhri stop

2DSC_2129
These buses are so popular or people are out of ideas that people named places on the route number of these buses. for example “2K ka akhri stop” which is somewhere near sakhi hasan or “W11 ka akhri stop”

I don’t know how these buses get their names but it seems 2K inpiration is from K2.

For years I used my student card in these buses. We use to pay only 75 Paisa at that time.

    There is a certain naming convention to the route numbers of buses in Karachi. I am not sure but I can find at the least three types:

    1. Those starting with a number, like 2K
    2. Those starting with a letter, like D-1
    3. Complete word, like “Friends Coach.”

    The first ones have always been “big” old-styled buses, and I personally believe that at one point in time, those were run by the government, and hence student card was used.

    The second category is those of “mini-buses” and they are privately operated…not sure as these are just my hypothesis.

    The final ones are coaches, which charge a hefty amount, and on papers, have fewer stops than any other buses.
