The plan was conformed in a meeting held at the Arfa Kareem Technology Park Tower between the officials of CTPL and PITB. The Chief Traffic Police Officer, Rai Ijaz Ahmad attended discussed the functionalities of RASTA app with other officials. He revealed that the app will have six basic features including traffic updates, e-licensing, e-challanning, FM Radio and complaints.
The RASTA app will help citizen to learn about different traffic routes to opt for reaching their desired destination in estimated time avoiding traffic blockages. Citizens will also be able to register their suggestions or complaints about wardens’ behaviour, licensing facility or traffic issues in any location.
