You will have to wait a bit more for the launch of the much-talked-about CPEC passenger bus service as owing to the prevailing law and order situation it has been postponed.
North-South Transport Network Pvt Ltd, the private transport company that is introducing the CPEC passenger bus service has moved the date from 3rd November to 5th November.
Since Wednesday, 31st October, country-wide protests are being held by Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) after the acquittal of Asia Bibi, the Christian woman facing death sentence over blasphemy charges, by the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
As we previously reported, the company successfully completed the trials on the route between China and Pakistan and has decided to operate the bus service to help the tourists, investors, and businesspeople of both countries.
The CPEC passenger bus service is expected to run four days a week from Lahore to Tashkurgan. The one-way ticket to Kashgar will cost Rs. 13,000 while the two-way ticket is priced at Rs. 23,000, much cheaper when you consider airline fare.
CPEC is a game-changing project that is bringing massive investments in Pakistan, helping it to revive its economy from the plunges of death. The bus service will make traveling easier for the businessmen and will provide a chance for the common people to explore our neighboring country.
