Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has extended the validity of bus passes of persons with physical disabilities.

Those with passes for 2012 will be allowed to use them till January 31, 2013. In a press release, the KSRTC said the passes had to be renewed for 2013. However, considering the inconvenience persons with physical disabilities are facing in renewing the passes, they have been permitted to use them till January 31, 2013.

Following the KSRTC decision, Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) too has decided to honour the 2012 passes and allow persons with physical disabilities to travel free till January 31, 2013, according to a BMTC release.
