Meeting also discussed the proposed fare and participants were told that it was proposed that “Rs 50 should be charged for Green Line and Blue Line Service while Rs 50 should be charged from Peshawar Mor to G.T. Road and Rs 100 will be charged from G.T. Road to Airport.”

However, final decision has not yet taken regarding fares but will be made after approval of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who will be given a presentation in coming days by CDA. At present, CDA is providing free bus service from Peshawar Mor to Airport, as federal government has yet to make a decision on fare.

Previously, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif inaugurated Peshawar Mor- Airport metro bus service in April. This project was supposed to be completed in 2018 which was initiated in 2017. However, it saw considerable delay of three years.
