Lahore: The Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) has launched a traffic monitoring app in Gujranwala called ‘Rasta’, according to a news source published on August 12. This app is available on both the iOS and Android platforms, and has been popularly operational in Lahore for some time now. It is expected to facilitate the residents of Gujranwala with regard to their road traffic-related concerns.
This app, created in collaboration with the City Traffic Police, deals with traffic issues, as well as online licensing. The services it offers include license application, challan payment, and planning driving routes. Users can also customize the app to give them regular traffic updates about specific areas, and can also find out about driving schools in their vicinity.
The app uses Google maps to gain information about various routes and guides users accordingly, even through congestion points in their commute. The PITB stated that the app would be constantly updated, keeping users abreast with the traffic situation in the city, whether there are protests, sit-ins, or any other incidents. This app has been deemed to be useful for citizens in a multipurpose way, which is why the PITB is planning to launch it in other cities of the province as well.
