A week since Pakistan’s first metro began operations in the eastern city of Lahore, the “Orange line” has seen a flurry of passengers who wanted to get a feel and look at the trains besides daily commuters.

With more than two dozen stations, stretching 27 kilometres, the “Orange Line” will cut travel time across Lahore from two-and-a-half hours by bus to 45 minutes on the metro.

Among many pictures and videos of the new metro system shared on social media was a clip that featured a little boy using the bars to do a somersault. “Lahore’s Orange Line metro providing new entertainment opportunities to the public,” tweeted Pakistan civil servant Danyal Gilani while sharing the video.

Another featured a boy using the metro handles to hang and twist. Here take a look:

However, many took the opportunity to also share hilarious memes and jokes, using videos of people goofing around in metros while using the caption shared by Gilani.
