"Bus nightmare" Local Transport Tip by waqaspai

Local Transport, Karachi: 12 reviews and 11 photos

If you are thinking to take a bus when in Karachi, dont even dream of taking it.

Buses here dont have any fixed bus stops -
people tend to get on and off the running bus - when it starts to slow down ,

Very difficult for a newbie to get on and off the buss -
Also, the buses are over loaded and crowded - at rush hours, people tend to travel on top of the roof of the bus.

Pick pockets are common in the buses -

Though travelling by bus is very cheap but not suggested to tourists -

Thought you will like the way buses and trucks are painted -
this might be the only good thing about the karachi buses :)
