Good News! The Punjab Government Announces to Start Bus Service for Girls and Teachers 2024

A big step has been made by the Ministry of Federal Education and Professional Training to address the transportation issues that female teachers and students in Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Schools confront. A fresh project that seeks to offer free transportation to make their journey easier has been announced.

Bus Scheme for Girls and Teachers

Twenty new buses will be introduced by the Ministry in order to solve the transportation problems that female teachers and students encounter. The administration of the district will help to deploy these buses.

  • Free Transportation: Female professors and students from public and private educational institutions will be able to travel for free in both urban and rural parts of the federal capital on pink buses.
  • Motive behind the Project: The Ministry wants fewer girls dropping out of school. Many girls have been noted to drop out since there are insufficient transportation options.
  • Percentage of Busses: The current state of transportation was found by an internal audit to be thirty percent of the 385 buses used by federal educational institutions. 
  • Purpose of this scheme: The main causes are shortages of drivers, financial limitations, and late maintenance.
  • Extension of Services: The buses will first serve just female teachers and students. Future use of similar buses by other women will be permitted, though, if there is room.
  • Timetable: All 20 buses will be operational by June 15 to
