If you are living in Peshawar (The capital of North West Frontier Provience) and you want to experience a lifetime as how to move fast on congested and withered roads, here is an option for you to just sit in the bus whose route is from Peshawar bus stand to Bara (The Khyber Agency).

It is of interest that other vehicles almost always get off their way because of their aggressiveness. The drivers of these buses controlled theirs buses by their well developed skilled driving and command.

The BaraBus not a only move aggressively but they are always being overloaded from people, standing in the roof, school children are hanging form the sides, people hanging at the gates.
