QUETTA, Sep 29 (APP):Chief Minister Balochistan, Jam Kamal Khan, Tuesday held a meeting to review the progress on ‘Green Bus Service’ project.

The provincial government was planning to launch the bus service in Quetta to overcome the traffic issues, besides providing affordable transport to the commuters.

A state-run public transport comprising, six big and four mini buses would be started on an experimental basis by determining suitable routes in Quetta.
