Providing a special service to the women and girls of the city, Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML) has decided to give free bus rides for the entire day on every 8th of the month. This facility will be available from Women’s Day i.e March 8, 2023.
Tejaswini was introduced on March 8, 2018. Due to lack of response to this bus service, it was shut down during the COVID-19 period. It was decided to resume this service later. Now on the occasion of Women's Day, PMPML will ferry female passengers for free in the city.
PMPML will also give free travel service to women by 'Tejaswini' bus on 8th of every month.
International Women's Day (IWD) (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
The aim of the IWD 2023 #EmbraceEquity campaign theme is to get the world talking about Why equal opportunities aren't enough. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action.
