KARACHI: According to Sindh Information and Transport Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon, the Orange Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Service would start running on September 10.

Details indicate that the Orange Line bus trial run from Orangi Town to the North Nazimabad Edhi Green Line station has begun. During the trial run, passengers are receiving free service.

The commercial operation of the Orange Line BRT Service, which was recently renamed the Abdul Sattar Edhi Line, will begin on September 10, according to an announcement made on Twitter by Sharjeel Inam Memon.

The provincial minister noted that the Sindh government had fully funded the building of the Orange Line BRTS for the residents of Karachi.

The 3.88-kilometer-long Orange Line corridor connects Orangi Town with the Board Office intersection. It has five terminals and can accommodate 30 buses at its depot. It is projected to get 50,000 passengers each day.
