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.

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.
