Rawalpindi -Orange Line metro routes to be linked up from Monday


In a big step to facilitate the residents of Rawalpindi traveling to Islamabad International Airport, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Thursday directed to connect the routes of Rawalpindi Metro Bus Service and Orange Line Metro Bus Service.

The prime minister directed the Capital Development Authority (CDA) chairman to connect the metro route originating from Rawalpindi Saddar and the Islamabad Secretariat with the Peshawar More Station of the Orange Line Metro.

For this purpose, a junction is being made at Faiz Ahmed Faiz Station of the Rawalpindi metro, which will become operational by Monday. After its inauguration by PM Shehbaz Sharif, the Orange Line Metro Bus at present is running from Peshawar More’s NHA Station up to Islamabad International Airport.

From Monday onwards, the travelers from Rawalpindi, besides accessing the airport route, will also benefit through the connections of Golra and NUST.
