CNG Bus project for Karachi

CDGK recently announced (source link lost, apologies) that 50 CNG buses will start operating on different routes from March. Routes include Surjani  – Nazimabad – Tower and Surjani – SF – Tower. This should especially be a relief for those who use these routes daily. It’s a much required effort as public transport is in complete mess and buses already being driven on routes are poor in passenger service. It’s hoped that this time this will not meet the same fate as Green Bus project did. Two main issues are: Drivers not following route/bus-stop and lane and poor bus condition. Cost for overall project is 250 million PKR. Not sure if the CNG bus project listed here on CDGK website is the same one.

    Karachi needs metro train not 50 or 100 CNG Buses it’s a metropolitan city with endless boundaries, expanding roads or bus numbers are not the solution. or still they are looking for another temporary way out ???

    I Own Karachi’ — and can sell it!

    By Ardeshir Cowasjee
    Sunday, 22 Feb, 2009.

    I had been raising this issue on this blog about encroachment of public parks and playgrounds by MQM’s unit terrorists under the patronage of criminal governor Ishrat Ibad and City Government of ‘young and dynamic’ nazim Mustafa Kamal.Altaf’s terrorist brigade is on rampage and encroaching and selling of land and plots in karachi inch by inch.

    MB can you kindly do a separate post on this issue in the light of excellent column by Cowasjee exposing MQM Altaf’s and MQMized city government.

    @doctor
    I had already drafted a post yesterday on this , i am posting it today now. My interest is not MQM but all-the-leadership

    @ Doctor
    LOL
    IF you give so much attention to Ardeshir Cowasjee, Who is also very active in karachi against masajids and his NGO Shehri has filed many cases in courts, so it mean Ardeshir Cowasjee is also right about masjids in karachi that those all masajids are illegal and should be destruct ?

    I guess like this article you also favor destruction of masajids in karachi on illegal land RIGHT ?

    The workers are wasting so much time in traveling , i think it will give them relief. But i can see most of the buses in karachi are still overloaded. I think they have to setup buses periodically ,twice,thrice a days in rush hours only. In this manner they can save cost. Ofcourse it’s not possible without a firm partnership agreement.


  9. mkasa on February 25th, 2009 @ 4:32 pm

    I am agree to @Galib. We need train , not the buses.

    kisi din arshad jee mullahon ke hathon buhat pitay ga.

    and Dilema for MQM wud be…ke kis ki side dain…arshadjee ki ya Jamatiyoon ki…:D:D:D


  13. odin on February 27th, 2009 @ 12:22 am

    Only Tram or Train service between between different areas of Karachi is a viable solution of Karachi traffic problems. All these buses and bridges and under-passes are useless.
