Decline Of Public Transportation in Karachi
Transcript of Decline Of Public Transportation in Karachi
Karachi, with a population of about 2.43 crore, is the biggest cosmopolitan city of Pakistan. It is also one of the major hubs of the economic activities of the country. Traveling is essential for almost all the day-to-day activities. While the population has expanded exponentially in the recent years, the quality coverage and reliability of transportation is not developed accordingly. Provision of an efficient and reliable public transport system in Karachi is the basic requirement, which seemed to be an unresolved issue eversince. However, the same has to be coupled with eco friendly procedures because the growing number of motor vehicles on the roads are not only the source of ever increasing noise and air pollution in the city but also causes a huge failure of our public transportation system.
From 1961, when we had only circular railway system as public transportation, till the present day in 2017; we have had many public transport means, like
CNG and KCR Autos
Chin Chi Rickshaw
According to the Urban Resources Center (URC) officer, Zahid Farooq, "In 1973, we had yellow Mazda which proceeded door to door; in 1977, we got coaches system which still exist. But from 1984, just after the case of Bushra Zaidi, the public transportation system began to decline."
If we talk about the general opinion, 98% of the public needs a better transportation system in Karachi.
We had 25000 number of buses which reduced to 8000. According to the president of the Karachi Transport Itehad (KTI), Syed Irshad Bukhari; In and after the Benazir murder, around 1500 buses were turned into ashes as a sign of rage.
In 2013-2015, Finance Minister Ishaq dar sponsored the KTI for their loss.
The remarkable conduct is that the fare of all buses remained the same throughout the last five years.
According to our survey, It is quite evident that lack of public transport is the causation for the increase in privately owned vehicles
"A large number of auto rickshaws also affected in the diminish of public transport in Karachi. Around 4 to 5 years earlier, Karachi had 56000 rickshaws and 26000 taxi which has now reduced immensely."
