Women in Punjab get to travel free of cost in all Government-run buses within the state from Thursday

The cabinet on Wednesday stamped its approval on the scheme which the Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh announced earlier this month. The scheme would benefit over 1.31 crore women and girls across the state.

However, it is not applicable to the government-owned AC, Volvo and HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) buses.

Women can avail this scheme in the government-owned buses, including Punjab Roadways Transport Corporation (PRTC), Punjab Roadways Buses (PUNBUS) and city bus services operated by the Local Bodies department.
