Do you know the Sindh Government Orders The Launch of Electric Buses?The Sindh Mass Transit Authority has been given the go-ahead to start operating people’s electric buses by Sindh Transport Minister Sharjeel Memon. Additionally, he added that Karachi should also decide the train’s routes.
Sharjeel Memon led a discussion about the People’s Bus Service on Monday (PBS). Participants in the meeting talked about getting new buses and establishing new routes.
The administration has chosen to expedite the procurement process and has authorised the acquisition of more buses, according to Sharjeel Memon.

The Sindh government previously disclosed its intention to introduce an electric taxi service in 2022 that will compete with ride-hailing services.
Memon claims that the prices for the currently available ride-hailing services have grown significantly. However, this has made it much more challenging to launch a new, less expensive taxi service.
He added that the Sindh Government is continually working to establish a convenient and eco-friendly taxi service in Karachi.
He claims that the initiative will soon be accessible to the whole public. However, Memon withheld the precise day. However, he said that the government has not yet begun testing the service.
It is crucial to note that an electric bus is one whose propulsion and ancillary systems are powered solely by a source of electricity with no emissions. Onboard batteries, overhead wires, hydrogen fuel cells, or ground-based non-contact conductors can all serve as the power source.
He said that the administration had decided to quicken the purchasing procedure and had given the go-ahead for the acquisition of more buses.
Late last year, the Sindh government also announced its plans to launch an electric taxi service to compete with ride-hailing apps.
Memon asserted that the costs charged by the present ride-hailing companies have increased significantly. The need for a new, more inexpensive taxi service has increased as a result of this. Memon claims that the Sindh government is devotedly attempting to build a modern, cosy, and ecologically friendly taxi service in Karachi. He added that this technology would soon be accessible to the general public.
