Telangana Free Bus Travel for women within the state under the Mahalakshmi Scheme was implemented by Government of Telangana a few months back. Recently, CM Revanth Reddy has shared good news for women in Telangana who benefit from this free TSRTC bus travel.

The exciting update is that the government has announced Telangana Free Bus travel for women in TSRTC special buses heading to the Medaram Fair next month, in February.

The government has decided that buses going to any fairs should not charge any fare from women passengers. The rule of Telangana Free Bus travel applies to ordinary and express TSRTC buses, and now this benefit is extended to special buses running for any fair. Due to the increased demand for the free bus facility, there is a significant demand for TSRTC buses, leading to a gradual increase in traffic. To meet the rising demand, the government has released many new buses, creating more job opportunities under RTC management.

During the Sankranti festival, the government provided free travel in special buses for a few days.

Now, the government has declared free travel for buses going to the Medaram Fair. This fair is celebrated once every two years, scheduled this year from February 21 to 24.

For this fair, numerous special buses are arranged, and women can travel free in these special buses. These buses will operate from February 18th to 25th, with around 6000 special buses, including 2000 city buses from Hyderabad.

There have been reports of women taking advantage of the free TSRTC bus travel scheme, traveling unnecessarily and boarding long-distance express trains, stopping wherever they want.

Concerned officials have consistently informed people not to take express trains unnecessarily and recommended women use village light buses.

Even though there were proposals from RTC officials to reconsider free travel for special buses during the Fair due to financial consequences, Finance Minister Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka rejected the idea. He emphasized that the Telangana Government implemented the free TSRTC bus scheme for the welfare of women, and no fares will be collected in special buses. The government will reimburse the cost, and RTC should run free buses to any fairs for women.
