The inauguration ceremony of Rawalpindi- Islamabad Metro Bus system has began.

Ministers and leaders of various political parties are among those who attended the inauguration.

The 23-kilometer line, where 68 air-conditioned buses will hold an estimated 135,000 passengers a day along exclusive, signal-free lanes, links the neat, leafy capital with its sprawling twin city Rawalpindi.

The project was constructed in 13 months; six months longer than planned and at a price of 44.84 billion rupees, and will use buses from Turkey.
