Self-adopted rules by transporters annoy commuters
The commuters said that the conductors of public transport preferred passengers wanted to go for short distance and creating problems unnecessarily for passengers. “Thousands of Rawalpindi residents have their jobs in the capital and have to commute by public transport daily but the approach of public transporters a main source of irritation for commuters”, said a commuter

The situation for passengers traveling on Route No 21 and 23 are not much different as the transporters do not complete their route in the night and in rainy season.
