Metro Orange Line Train Fares In Lahore Have Been Revised
November 21, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News
The Orange Line Metro Train (OLMT) tariffs have been adjusted by the Punjab government due to growing inflation. The stop-to-stop tariff for the OLMT, which consists of five brackets, has been authorized by the Punjab Cabinet.
Muneeb Sultan Cheema, the provincial transport minister, mentioned the following fare categories:
|Rs. 20 for a journey up to 4 km|
|Rs. 25 for up to 8 km|
|Rs. 30 for up to 12 km|
|Rs. 35 for up to 16 km|
|Rs. 40 from Ali Town to Dera Gujran and vice-versa (end-to-end journey)|
Additionally, working women and students will receive fare reduction cards from the Punjab Mass Transit Authority (PMTA). For the convenience of senior citizens and people with disabilities, the department has already distributed free-ride cards.
When discussing the situation with Dawn, a top official said:
We will roll out the distance-based pricing for the Orange Line in phases. We planned to start using our arrangements as of November 18 but were unable to do so since the minutes from the meeting on Thursday were not released. However, we will put it into practice as soon as we have the minutes we anticipate in a day or two. The weekly, monthly, and free travel cards will be developed in the second phase. Additionally, working women and students will be given the cards in exchange for a 30% fare discount.
The discount cards for working women and students are seeking cabinet approval.
