Rawalpindi: The Punjab Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC) has completed the arrangements for the launch of its double-decker tourist bus service between Islamabad and Rawalpindi this Friday (August 14), according to a news source.
Reportedly, the PTCD has purchased two double-decker busses for the purpose and have customised them to reflect the Pothohari culture. The main bus terminal for these busses has been established at the Allama Iqbal Park Road, Shamsabad. Sources claim that the corporation will expand the existing route of the tourist bus in phases.
The double-decker bus will head to Shakar Parian via Faizabad and lead all the way to the Faisal Masjid while passing through Chand Tara, China Centre, Jasmine Garden, Lok Virsa, and Daman-e-Koh. In order to travel on these busses, travelers can make online bookings.
Earlier in 1950, double-decker busses were used in Rawalpindi for transportation purposes. This service was terminated in 1975.
