Transportation issues in Karachi University... By Hiba

05 December, 2013

I want to draw attention to the education department of Sindh. The most common issue the students face is that of the transportation system of the University of Karachi (KU). This university is the second largest university in Pakistan and is spread over an area of 1,279 acres of land. KU has a status of excellence at all levels of higher education. It is ranked amongst the top 400 institutions in the world in the subjects of Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and Life Sciences. Currently, it has six different faculties for Arts, Science, Pharmacy, Engineering, Management, Administration Science and Islamic Studies but, unfortunately, we have the worst system of transport for students.

The increases in prices of oil and gas have also increased public transport fares, which have become unaffordable for many students. Thousands of students from KU risk their lives daily and endure a lot of inconvenience while travelling on overloaded varsity buses due to a lack of buses, most of them in poor condition and requiring repair. As a student, I appeal to and urge the concerned people to increase the number of buses and provide comfort to all students. Students and education are our assets and the future of this nation.
