    • Sir Don’t know about the status how the ticket can be used as daily pass 50/- but in the news Free tickets / pass issued are for 10 days in a month only, we will get the right info and reply you soon.


      • Dear Sir,

        Sr,citizen tickets for the forthcoming months like june. july and august when will be issued. Please inform the dates in which I can get the tickets.


    • After enquiring with officals, you have to submit the form to nearest depot, they will seal it and return to you, with that you can show it to conductor he will issue you token you have return it after your trip completes. only 10 tokens for up and down for a month will be issued. you can use it only on your a – b travel point and vice versa., not like the daily 50 Rs pass.


  1. Instead of free bus pass the corporation can issue tickets in two denominations Rs.3/- for short distances and Rs.5/- for long distances to all senior citizens who carry ID card issued by the corporation.


  2. I just need one more clarification, It is applicable only for chennai. how about the senior citizens living in other places in Tamilnadu except chennai ?
