Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said women in the Capital will be able to travel for free in all DTC and cluster buses from October 29.

Rationale given by CM
In Delhi, the percentage of women in the workforce is merely 11 % and women using public transport accounts for only 30%. Free travel for women in public transport will encourage women to work more, girl students will be able to travel to their educational institutions without any hesitation and Delhi will gain as an aspirational city.
