Pakistan to Provide $66.4 Million for CNG Buses for Karachi

Daily Times. The City District Government Karachi (CDGK) has devised a program to replace old buses with 8,000 new CNG buses over the next four years.

The federal government is offering Rs 4 billion (US$66.4 million) to help the local transporters to get these buses imported at subsidized rates.

The CDGK has also earmarked Rs 500 million (US$8.3 million) for the scheme under its current fiscal year budget. This will be complemented with an annual allocation of Rs 10 billion (US$166 million) per year for the next three consecutive years.

“The city government is keen to improve the public transport system and this requires close coordination among all the relevant stakeholders,” said [Naib Nazim Nasreen] Jalil.

This is a laudable program since Pakistan has domestic sources of natural gas and probably a severe smog problem in its largest city, Karachi.

I'm a little confused by the numbers, though. They do not appear to add up. It's also unclear if the program covers only complete replacement vehicles, replacement engines or engine retrofits to CNG fuel.


It proofs that Pakistan is the 3rd largest country, for CNG usage in the world.

Great initiative to clean the air and wipe out pollution -- what about Refueling Infrastructure ? Since to date there is no such CNG Station which has the capacity to fill buses -- Though the existing station can only fill small vehicles like cars with capacity of 6-12kg per vehicle.
