Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) has offered free bus travel for the rest of their lives to two girls who were born on its buses recently. As a birthday present, the state-owned transportation agency offered free lifetime passes for the two babies. While the first girl was born on board a Nagarkurnool depot bus on November 30 near Peddakothapally hamlet, another woman gave birth to her daughter on board on December 7 near Siddipet. The bus is from the Asifabad bus station.
These two women unexpectedly went into labour onboard to their respective destinations and the TSRTC crew members and fellow passengers helped the women deliver their babies.
Later, the TSRTC crew coordinated with officials of the Health Department and rushed the mothers and newborns to the nearby government hospitals in 108 ambulances for further treatment. They are said to be doing well.
Appreciating the quick response and support of the TSRTC crew and passengers, TSRTC Vice Chairman and Managing Director V. C. Sajjanar said he was pleased to offer newborns free lifetime passes for their travel on TSRTC buses.
