Under this agreement the company has agreed to buy the base after completion of 12 years. Peshawar BRT has-been contracted with Daewoo Company to continue  operation.

Why will these buses be given so cheaply Price?

Mr Sadaf Kamil the spokesperson of Trans Peshawar in Peshawar said that this is an international procedure & all the metro buses around world are handed over to the same contractor or company at the end of their life. A contract is made with.


Sadaf Kamal said that the age of these buses is usually up to 12 years & after that it is harmful to run these buses. Agreements have-been made with the companies of all the BRT  metro bus services in Pakistan & these buses will be handed over to this company on the expiry of the ownership rights or on completion of agreement.

Contract is such that the company or the contractor is paid per kilometer & the company bears the cost of repairing & operating buses.

Mr Kamal said that there are 02 types of contract 1  where the government makes the principal payment for purchase of the BRT buses  the initial payment for the buses is made by the operating company. The difference here is that if the government pays the cost per kilometer is reduced.

For example in the  BRT metro bus services that are running in different cities of Pakistan the buses that have been paid for by the company under the contracts are being paid 234 rupees per kilometer by the government. Under the contract that BRT has signed in Peshawar company is being paid Rs 187 per km.

He says that the main difference is Rs 47 Rupes per km. If we look at the annual journey of a bus a bus runs around 70000 km. Now if you multiply 70000 by 47 then the minimum amount for 12 years becomes four crore rupees then the price of the bus is completed with this discount.

According to Sadaf Kamil actual cost of the buses that have-been purchased for  Metro BRT is between one and a half to 02 & a half crore rupees & this difference is related to the length of the buses.
