The premier civic agency of the federal capital has decided to operate electric buses in an extended, dedicated corridor for the metro bus service connecting the city to the Islamabad International Airport (IIA).
In this regard, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has prepared an operationalization model for the Metro Bus Service (MBS) from Peshawar Morr to IIA.
CDA officials said that a meeting in this regard was held in the office of the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on CDA Affairs Ali Nawaz Awan recently where modalities of the model were discussed.
The model includes fleet acquisition, information technology services, security surveillance, and AFC system acquisition. It also includes the construction of allied infrastructure such as a command and control center.
The official added that the operations and maintenance of the service will be outsourced through four different service contracts and perhaps to four separate contractors
