But you all must have seen Delhi’s Metro, it is equipped with all the facilities, but have you ever thought that Pakistan’s Metro will also look exactly like India’s Metro from inside and outside. However, in many respects it pales in front of the Delhi Metro. Let us tell you about this metro of Pakistan today.
Pakistan’s Orange Line Metro
The 27 km (17 mi) long Orange Line has more than two dozen stations. People can now move easily from the congested city of Lahore. While it used to take two and a half hours by bus, it now takes only 45 minutes by metro. The metro line has been built with the help of China. Pakistan’s metro has been constructed in such a way that you will see it like Delhi Metro. (All photos credit: orangelinemetro@instagram)
Counters or TVMs are made for tokens.
The way passengers recharge their cards with tokens or machines for the metro running in many cities of India, similarly this metro of Pakistan also has the same facility. From here also people can go to the counter to take token for traveling or can recharge the card from TVM machine or withdraw token. Let me tell you, this is also the first intra-city rail service of Pakistan.
There are 26 stations in the Lahore Metro.
Seeing the way Delhi Metro has expanded itself in every area, it seems that in the coming times, people will leave vehicles and travel mostly by Metro. For information, let us tell you that there are more than 200 stations in Delhi Metro, in this way it has become very easy for people to travel in the morning and evening. On the other hand, if we talk about Pakistan’s Orange Metro, then only 26 stations are built in Lahore Metro.
The journey can be completed in one and a half hour by Lahore Metro
In Delhi, the way it takes more than 3 hours in the by road routes, whereas it can be reached by metro in just 1 to 1.5 hours. Talk about Pakistan Metro, here also the journey of two hours can be completed by Metro in 1 to 1.5 hours. On the other hand, looking at the metro of this country, you would say that it is just like Delhi Metro!
The route map is placed on the seat and door
Traveling in Delhi Metro is very easy, there is a map as well as announcement inside. Means which is the next station to come, or how the door will open, this type of information goes on in the metro every 2 seconds. You will get to see some similar facility in Pakistan Metro as well, here also there are maps of the way on the seat, as well as the map will also be visible on the doors. Not only this, LED screen like Delhi Metro is also installed inside the metro. (photo credit: wikimedia commons)
