In order to improve travel for passengers and provide opportunities for neighborhood small business owners, Pakistan Railways will restart the “Bahauddin Zakaria Express” train that runs between Multan and Karachi on June 1.
An official who talked with APP stated that “The department had suspended the operation of Bahauddin Zakaria Express as the railway track was badly damaged in the flash floods caused by above-normal monsoon rains during the last year across the country.”
He said that the department had already informed the public that the train was being restored in accordance with the directives of Minister of Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique.
According to the administration, there would be travel on the Bahauddin Zakaria Express between Multan and Karachi City. The department has also used various media to publicise the return of the train on the route after nine months. The train’s two stops, Jungshahi and Jhimpir, would be eliminated in accordance with the current summer timetable, and it would then run in accordance with its initial timing and schedule.
The source said that Pakistan Railways planned to refurbish two passenger trains in order to provide passengers with the greatest amenities and boost revenue for the department in order to foster self-sufficiency.
Khawaja Saad Rafique, in order to accommodate the throng, “has already issued directions to the relevant officials to make all necessary arrangements in this regard for renovating Karachi-bound trains,” the man said.
He said that the department would gain from greater income as a result of the upgrades that would be made to trains like the Pak-Business Express and Karakoram Express in accordance with the Green-Line Train’s concept.
