Yesterday, the Karachi transportation department began testing its brand-new battery-powered passenger Electric Buses.
Electric Buses Trial
Trial runs are being done by the department between Sea View and the Sindh Archives Complex. Sharjeel Inam Memon, the Sindh Minister of Information and Transport, and other pertinent officials participated in the test runs and examined the recently imported electric buses.
Following the completion of test drives, Memon indicated that the department would put the new buses into service in 10 days. He continued by saying that Karachi was the first city in Pakistan to implement an eco-friendly electric bus service. Memon stated that the department would shortly reveal the new service’s routes.
He added that Sindh’s public transit system suffers a lot of difficulties. He stated that the government is making an effort to address problems by giving locals access to convenient and up-to-date means of transportation.
Memon added that the government will work with the business sector to expand the usage of electric buses and will endeavour to assure local production of the vehicles to hasten Pakistan’s embrace of environmentally friendly transportation options.
Syed Owais Shah
The project’s foundation was laid by Syed Owais Shah, a former minister of Sindh’s transportation department, who introduced Pakistan’s first electric bus in Karachi in 2021. The government of Sindh wants to increase this service’s accessibility for the public and lessen the carbon footprint of the transportation industry.
