Many people heaved a sigh of relief after Pakistan Railways partially resumed its services on Wednesday. Fifteen trains have been given permission to operate and take people to their homes at the time of Eid-ul-Fitr. The department has been taking only 60% of bookings through online bookings. Passengers have been asked to bring their own masks, gloves, hand sanitisers and soap with them.
The authorities have stopped the entry of unrelated people and installed walk-through gates so that passengers can be disinfected. The passengers said that the price of the train tickets was the same as before and that four people were seated in a compartment compared to six in the past.
