The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) led Sindh Government has launched the ‘Peoples Bus Service’ in Karachi on Monday. According to the details, these Red Buses will move on 11 different routes in the metropolis and connect Karachi to Larkana as well in order to connect major residential hubs and industrial and business centers.
It is pertinent to mention that Peoples Bus Service is a separate project from the network of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lines. Under the Peoples Bus Service, the Sindh Government will launch a total of 240 buses on different routes throughout Karachi.
The Peoples Bus Service has routes connecting important points within Karachi, while providing people with Centralized Air-Conditioned Red Buses for their commute. Each bus has a seating capacity of around 40 persons and dedicated spaces for ladies.

Dear CM Sindh action on bus conductors.
Yes U correctly mentioned the corruption by People Bus Service Conductors by charging Rs 50 from each & every one who traveled for minimum / maximum distance
No ticket system in the People Bus Service which enhanced the corruption in the PSB by management via conductors of PBS
