New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi has decided to offer free travel to people belonging to the third gender in the national Capital, whereby transgender community will be able to travel without paying any fares in DTC and cluster buses.

Making the announcement in a video message on X, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the scheme will be implemented soon after the proposal is passed by the Cabinet.

“In our society, people belonging to the third gender are subjected to humiliation. This should not happen as they too are human beings and have the right to equality. The Delhi government has decided that they will get to travel for free in state-run buses. Soon, this will be passed by the Cabinet and implemented. I have full faith that people of the transgender community will be greatly benefitted by this move,” Kejriwal said.

The Delhi government has been providing women free travel on these buses since October 2019.

“It’s very popular in Delhi… Around 14 lakh women avail of the free bus service daily,” Kejriwal said.
