Orange trains are the first driverless trains in Pakistan, with their line spanning 27.1km. There are 27 trains, and each has a capacity of holding 200 passengers (20% sitting and 80% standing).
The orange line passes through some of Lahore’s major roads and connects significant areas like UET, Shalimar Gardens, Chauburji Square, and Lahore’s Main Train Station, making it an ideal mode of transport for travelers or someone new here.
This automated train has 27 stops, of which 25 are elevated, and two are underground. It runs for 16 hours a day from 6 am to 10 pm. The noticeable fact is that the underground stations are air-conditioned – a big plus in the scorching summers of Lahore.
Starting from Stabling Yard, it runs along Raiwind road and stops at Thokar Niaz Baig. From Thokar Niaz Baig, it runs with Multan Road to the station at Chauburji. It then runs along Lake Road, Edward Road, and Ustad Allah Bakhsh Road to stop at GPO Chowk.
The train then continues running along McLeod Road and stops at Qila Gujjar Singh. From Qila Gujjar Singh, it runs along Nicholson Road and stops at Bohar Wala Chowk, from where it runs over the Railway lines to Sultanpura (Coop Store). Finally, from Sultanpura, it goes with GT Road to stop at Dera Gujran.
