RAWALPINDI - People are facing problems due to the scarcity of the public transport in twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. Citizen complained that they couldn’t reach schools, colleges and offices in time because of shortage of transportation. Citizens said that personals of vehicles allotted route no 1 and 3 do as they please. They do not board passenger of short distance where as rest are made to wait hours at bus stops, they added.
Women have to wait for hours on bus stops owing to fewer seats. Only two seats in each van are reserved for woman, this along with unethical behaviour of van staff has made travel by public transport for them a huge task.
Citizen have requested the relevant authorities to increase the number of public transport mitigate their situation.
