LAHORE: Punjab Chief Usman Buzdar on Monday inaugurated a fleet of 64 new environment-friendly buses for the Lahore Metro Bus service.

The CM formally handed over buses to Punjab Masstrasit Authority and inspected the facilities after unveiling the plaque.

While addressing the ceremony held at metro bus depot Ferozepur Road, the Punjab chief minister said the PTI-led Punjab government was striving hard to resolve the problems of Lahorities on a priority basis.

“Punjab government is working on improving the transport system in Lahore,” he said, adding that underpasses and overhead bridges were being constructed to overcome the traffic problems in the metropolis.

Usman Buzdar said the Punjab government had saved Rs2 billion in a new contract made with VEDA regarding Lahore Metro Bus service operations.

The earlier deal was signed with a foreign company, while the current contract had been signed with a local company to save foreign reserves, he added.
