  1. I was wondering if trackers could be installed in each of the KCR trains so that one May plan a journey to.any destination. It would be very inappropriate to go and wait for a train.
    My next point is crossings like Gulbai and site roads should not be closed at random when a crossing is anticipated. It would take only 15 minutes.for a massive road jam. If the train simply stops and slowly pushes ahead it would take just 5 minutes for each crossing. This train is a need for our masses. I pray to Allah for its success. Ameen.

  2. We are very much happy after the revival of Karachi Circular Railway, i must say thanks to Prime Minister Imran Khan, and the Railway Minister Mr Sheikh Rasheed and other Gorvernment Officials, we must say to those who are critisizing the initiative that someone is there who realize the real problem of transport for Karachi people.
    At the end i hope that the route will be cleared for all track for Karachi Circular railway and it must be modernized over the period of time. God bless Pakistan, Pakistan Zindabad.

  3. I must request to the public of Karachi who are travelling in KCR to take care of the train regarding neat and cleaning of the coaches, and please purchase the ticket so that it can earn profit and subsequently improvement in the service of KCR.
