CHENNAI: The Metropolitan Transport Corporation (MTC) will commence distribution of tokens to elderly commuters for free travel in buses for January-June period from December 21.

People above the age of 60 years are eligible for free travel on MTC buses 10 times a month under a scheme introduced in February 2016.

Upon submitting an application and proof of age, 10 tokens for free travel will be issued.

Tokens issued will be valid for six months from January to June. To apply afresh, beneficiaries may submit the application form along with address proof (ration card) and proof of their age (Aadhaar, driving licence, voters' ID and educational certificates) and two colour passport size photos at any of the 40 depots or terminus in the city. To renew, they need to bring the old free travel card.

The tokens would be issued from 8 am to 7.30 pm at 40 centres from December 21 to January 31.

From February 1, the tokens will be available at the respective depots during the office hours.
