Pakistan: Transporting Students

Metroblogging Islamabad on the inadequate transport facilities for students in the city. “I talked to a few students on the road, about the transportation availabilty in their schools and the responses were quite shocking. Most came back with complains that their schools, including the private and the public ones were facing acute transport shortages. Cost of private transport is too high for most student's parent to afford, so they have to opt for either the public transport or the crowded school buses.”
