Delhi government roots for concessions and free rides

In an attempt to attract more commuters to Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) buses, the transport department has proposed to give free rides to senior citizens (above 60 years) and students (up to 21 years). The government is also planning to provide hefty concessions to female commuters in monthly passes.

A senior spokesperson in the Delhi government said, “Delhi Transport Minister Satyendar Jain had asked the department to prepare a proposal, which will be presented before the next cabinet meeting scheduled for March 7.”  

At a press conference on March 3 at the Delhi Secretariat, the transport minister had said, “A DTC monthly bus pass will be available for women commuters at Rs 250. Currently, it is priced at Rs 850 for non-AC and Rs 1,000 for AC. Also, we will provide free rides to senior citizens and students up to 21 years of age in DTC and cluster buses.”
