“DTC will provide free ride for women passengers in its all non-AC buses plying in Delhi and NCR on the occasion of Bhai Duj on October 25,” DTC spokesperson R S Minhas said.
Minhas said that the women passengers would be allowed to take free rides on DTC’s non AC buses between 8 AM to 5 PM on that day.
“However, free-ride service for women passengers will not be available on AC and Inter-state buses which are destined to the towns beyond NCR.
