Telangana women eligible for ‘Maha Lakshmi Free Bus’ scheme with valid ID; ‘Zero Ticket’ to be issued

Hyderabad: Good news for women and the third gender in Telangana! The Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) has introduced the ‘Maha Lakshmi Free Bus’ scheme. This means eligible women from Telangana can now travel for free on City Ordinary, Express, Metro Express, and Palle Velugu buses.

The Chief Minister, A Revanth Reddy, will officially launch the scheme at 1:30 pm on Saturday from the State Assembly premises. After the launch, women ministers and MLAs are expected to hop on these buses.

To benefit from this free bus service, women need to be residents of Telangana and should carry valid ID cards with their addresses. These eligible women will then be issued a ‘Zero Ticket,’ allowing them to travel without any cost.

Importantly, there’s no limit on the distance these women can travel within the state. However, for interstate travel, the free scheme applies only up to the state borders. The initiative aims to make transportation more accessible for women in Telangana.
