Lahor's rapid bus lane system was inaugurated on Sunday in a ceremony attended by Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag.

Bozdag and and Pakistan main opposition leader Nawaz Sharif inaugurated the Metrobus system, a rapid public transit network similar to Istanbul's fleet operating on dedicated bus lanes.

"This is an important example of the cooperation between Turkey and Pakistan. Our two brotherly countries should further improve cooperation in commerce, education, health and social life," Bozdag told the ceremony.

The bus lane project was prepared by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality and part of the lane was constructed by Albayrak Holding, a Turkish contractor, which also won operating rights of the system for 8 years.

The 27-kilometer lane will carry 100,000 passengers a day.
