PESHAWAR - The Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) has restored its service today (Saturday) after a comprehensive inspection of all buses to ensure the safety of the passengers, following a month-long pause due to repeated fire incidents in the buses.

The Express Route on Central Corridor has also been activated and a special route is introduced from Khyber Bazaar to Mall of Hayatabad.

Last month, The BRT service was suspended after repeated fire incidents compelled the government to inquire ascertain the faults.
