The Orange Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project, which was launched under the supervision of the Sindh government on June 10, 2016, is nowhere near completion despite the passage of five years.

The Orange Line bus project was launched by former Sindh chief minister Qaim Ali Shah in June 2016 to facilitate about 50,000 residents of Orangi Town.

The Orange Line bus project covers a distance of four kilometres from the Orangi Municipal Office to Matriculation Board Chowrangi. A total of 18 buses would run under this system.

After the passage of five years, the elevated track on the project has been completed while work on four stations, four pedestrian bridges, and a depot is incomplete.

The project, which was dedicated to late philanthropist Abdul Sattar Edhi, was supposed to be completed within a year since its groundbreaking in 2016. The Sindh government had earmarked Rs1.14 billion for the completion of the project.
