The government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has agreed to restore all public transportation in the province from Monday, 18 May.
“We will finalise SOPs together with transporters and resume public transport from Monday,” KP CM’s adviser on information Ajmal Wazir said Friday.
He said passengers will have to pay petroleum products tariffs according to new prices.
Wazir said the decision had been taken after consultation with the federal government.
Commissioners will agree on the individual routes within a division, the CM’s advisor says. They’ll also be settling on the inter-district roads.
The KP government’s announcement came hours after it asked provinces to restore public transport.
The transport was suspended the last week of March after a lockdown was imposed in the province. It was designed to curb the spread of coronavirus.
And now the restrictions around the country have been relaxed. Pakistan also declared earlier resumption of domestic flights starting May 16.
