Metro bus service in the federal capital and its sister city Rawalpindi was restored on Wednesday as the country reported a steady decline in Covid-19 cases, allowing for the resumption in public transport. The administration has issued standard operating procedures (SOPs) for travel in the metro bus service. Under the issued SOPs, it will be prohibited to travel while standing on the bus and passengers will only be able to travel if they are seated as per social distancing rules. In addition, it has been made mandatory for passengers to wear masks and abide by the preventive measures to ensure the safety of the passengers on the bus. The Metro bus service was suspended on March 23 due to the coronavirus.
