However, the board approved a fare hike of Rs. 20, resulting in a new fare of Rs. 50 for the metro bus service in Islamabad.

CDA officials cited a nearly doubled cost for the Metrobus service compared to the previous year’s tender as the reason for the fare adjustment.

These increased costs have posed significant challenges to the continued operation of the service.
