  1. Great initiative. Cannot be but appreciated.
    As the Chinese proverb says “it is easy to open a shop but difficult to keep it open”, therefore we hope this service will continue now. Transportation business in Chitral is a very tricky business as much as it is profitable. Multiple mafias are involved in it and would not like new entrants with transparent work plan. Even if God forbid this good intended service cannot survive, we still would owe you thanks for trying,
    One point that irks the mind is the mention of concession for Chitral domicile holders may they be women folk. As a one time gesture it may be Ok, but not as a policy please,

  2. Good initiative but the fare must be reduced as it is too burden on the passengers we chitralis are mostly students and labour bonded so travelling towards big cities
