ISLAMABAD – As several companies started designated sections that are reserved for women, the latest to join the bandwagon is Pakistan State Oil which offered a special lane for female customers.
The special pink lane initiative aimed to offer a safe and comfortable travel experience for women, especially during peak hours when many citizens faced overcrowding in major metropolis.
Pakistan State Oil Company (PSO) rolled out a special lane for women riders and drivers at one of its filling stations. The fuel machine was made in a vibrant pink theme with a banner depicting a lady driver.
Social media users were quick enough to respond to the latest development. As many commended PSO’s move, a few opposed the idea, calling it pointless.
