Trans Peshawar has successfully secured funding of Rs 1 billion to support the operations of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system. The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has allocated this substantial budget to maintain the efficient functioning of the BRT service.

As stated by the Trans Peshawar spokesperson, this budget allocation will cover the operational costs of the Peshawar BRT service from November 2023 to February 2024. It’s important to clarify that there is no truth to the circulating rumors suggesting that the BRT service is facing closures or restrictions due to financial constraints.
