Karachi to Get Bus Corridor Projects Worth $1 Billion

Bloomberg announced that the World Bank (WB) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) are investing $1 billion in Karachi to help modernize public transportation. Bus networks on dedicated lanes are the focus of the projects.

Syed Awais Qadir Shah, Sindh’s Minister for Transport and Mass Transit, said in an interview that work on the $550 million Red Line, which is being funded by the Asian Development Bank, will begin this month, and the $455 million World Bank-funded design will begin before the end of the year.

The minister also announced that the ADB’s Red Line project will include 280 custom-built buses that will run on methane before switching to batteries. The province aims to develop a biogas plant to generate methane from animal waste.
