"I am traveling in Taizgaam today, couch number is 15-B. So many un-reserved people have entered the cabin and are forcefully occupying space by ejecting reserved passengers. Our new minister of Naya Pakistan should take note of this."
"Railway Minister sahib, today 17th Oct-2018, Karachi Express, going from Lahore to Karachi, has departed 4 hours late. Complete power system failure occurred when reached Chichawatni station. Is this your Naya Pakistan, my family is on the road for the past 6 hours with no destination in sight."
"Today on 22nd of July 2018, I am traveling through Khybermail. It is a complete nightmare for me and my family. I am still in the train and the time is 6:50 a.m. We boarded from Hyderabad for Lahore. No one was there to attend. Call bell was out of order. Attendants were sleeping. No guard was there to listen to complaints. No one was there to provide pillow and chaddar. All night we were without any cover. My daughter felt cold all night and I had nothing to help her with. Services are declining day by day. I heard that Khybermail has been renovated as per international standard. I think they mean as per standard of the poorest African countries. May God protect us from corrupt people of railway, they have destroyed this great institution."
"My family traveled yesterday [24-JUN-2018] from Lahore to Karachi using the service of PAK Business Express. The booking details are as follows: Booking Name: Aisha & family Date: 24th of June, 2018 AC Business Class - Coach No. 5 (Seat D 5/6) Train No. 304DN Pak Business Express We were highly disappointed with the services provided to the passengers of Business Class on 24th of June, 2018 Lahore to Karachi. First of all, this Coach No. 5 is very very old and not meant for Business Class bookings rather economy class might be much better than Coach No. 5.! The main issues are as follows: - AC was not working at all. Too much suffocation in this hot weather. - Washrooms are more than DIRTY and there were no water available. - No Water dispensers are available for drinking water. - Passengers without booking are sleeping on the walking floor. Having said the above, I will be going to launch the complaint to the headquarters as well. I would appreciate if anyone can please check and investigate with your team and advise why this happened. I need written confirmation on the compensation and assurance from you that these issues will not be replicated going forwards. I Hope strict and immediate actions will be taken in this regard."
"Completely useless service. Tickets are never available and if you are lucky to get one then it would be too expensive. How is this a service for the common man when the ticket prices are so expensive and beyond their means to purchase one."
"The latest online reservation system is a good addition to the achievements of Pakistan Railways. It has made the life of train travelers much easier. "
"I am a regular traveler from Islamabad to Lahore in AC Parlor bogie. My experience is that some of the services have much improved like train timings but other services like no soap in washroom, no good video movies, no provision of tea on time still exist. Moreover I appreciate that the Pakistan Railway is also running another train service as Awami Express at 1 pm, but there is no AC Parlour bogie which must be there."
"Normally I travel through Pakistan Railways. The services have improved but Pakistan Railways needs to work on the timing. "
