Be it buses or local trains, women always find it difficult to ply due to rush and sometimes due to unavailability of the service. To cater these needs, the BEST has decided to bring in 50 exclusive buses for women which will be known as ‘Tejasvini’.

A senior official told Times of India,

These buses will mainly cater to feeder/office-going routes outside railway stations and ferry women commuters in the island city and suburbs."


What will be the timings?

Initially, the BEST plans to run the buses during peak hours i.e. from 7:00 am to 11:00 am and from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. These buses will run only on specific routes which will be closer to the commercial hubs.

Along with these special buses, the BEST is also planning to bring in women conductors.
