The Peshawar Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project in Pakistan, the first modern traffic system covering all of Peshawar, recently went into operation.
Featuring smart traffic, ticketing, station management and bike sharing systems, the project included a 27-kilometer main road with 31 stops and seven secondary roads with 146 stations as well as supportive facilities like 220 buses.
What's more, hundreds of sharing bikes are placed near stations along the lines, completing a green and convenient method of travel.
Valued about $414 million in total, the project is a safe and comfortable traveling choice for about 340,000 passengers per day.
The project will greatly relieve traffic congestion and reduce problems of environmental pollution and waste of resources.
It is also expected to help improve local employment, increase local people's per-capita income and contribute to public security.
The project was contracted by Beijing E-Hualu International Technology Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China Hualu Group Co., Ltd. (China Hualu).
