The Rawalpindi-Islamabad Metrobus is a 24 km (14.9 mi) BRT system that serves the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad in Pakistan. It uses dedicated bus lanes for all of its route covering 24 bus stations. It was inaugurated on June 4, 2015 by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif becoming the second fully functional BRT service in Pakistan after the great success of the BRTS in Lahore.
