Pink Bus service to facilitate women in KP reportedly shut down

The Pink Bus Service started in 2018 to facilitate women in Mardan and Abbottabad in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) has already been shut down. The Japanese government donated 14 pink buses for the cause and KP government had intentions to gradually expand this project to other cities. However, the service was not making profits and closed within an year.

Sources believe that one of the reasons behind the failure of this service was that men were not allowed to ride in the buses. Therefore, women could not travel with their brothers, fathers, or husbands and had to use other means of transport.
