LAHORE: The arrival and departure of buses under the Pak-India Dosti Service have been limited to Wagah border because of terrorism threats.

Passengers leaving for India (New Delhi) and those returning are being dropped at Wagah border. Passengers arriving from India are also being dropped at Wagah because the PTDC authorities have shifted the entire bus operation to its sub-office at the border.
