CDA To Finally Start Its Own Bus Service In Islamabad

CDA Islamabad finally has some good news!

The Capital Development Authority has decided to start a bus service to facilitate the residents of Islamabad. The decision was taken on Tuesday in a meeting held by CDA Chairman Amer Ali Ahmed.

The project called Islamabad Bus Service will initially comprise 30 buses. 

The air-conditioned buses will have a seating capacity of 70 people with reserved seats for women and differently-abled people. 

The service will begin from Soan Interchange to Faisal Masjid, Bhara Kahu to Faiz Ahmed Faiz Metro Bus Station, and Tarnol Railway Station to N-5 Metro Bus Station. 

There will be 64 stations with tuck shops, public washrooms, and strict and innovative security arrangements. 

The timings decided so far, are: 

  • Monday to Friday: 6:30 am to 9:00 pm
  • Saturday and Sunday: 8:00 am to 10;00 pm

However, the timings may vary according to public needs.

The bus routes will have depots and parking areas. Filling stations present for the refueling of buses will benefit the general public as well. 

Signboards installed at the stations will help the company generate revenue using advertisements.

CDA Islamabad will administer bus purchase and the construction and renovation of bus stations, depots, and parking areas, while Metro Command and Control Authority will oversee the project. 

The project is expected to launch in December after federal cabinet approval.
