New Delhi, Oct 31 (IANS) The Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) will provide free trips to women passengers in its AC and non-AC buses within the national capital and the National Capital Region (NCR) on the occasion of ‘Bhai Dooj’ on Tuesday.
This facility will, however, not be available on inter-state buses, which are destined to towns beyond NCR, an official statement said on Monday.
“Heavy rush of passengers is expected on ‘Bhai Dooj’ day. Therefore, in order to cater to the extra rush of commuters on this day, the DTC has decided to press extra buses into service, so that the buses could be made available to commuters easily and timely.

Adequate number of traffic supervisory staff will be deployed to provide all possible help to the commuters,” the statement added.
