HRTC website says that they extend special concession to the extent of 20% over their usual fare to the travelers, who fell in the category of "senior citizens". I find in their website that

1. there is no eligibility criteria for the "senior citizens";
2. there is no mention of proof (documents etc.) that is acceptable
to HRTC;
3. there is no guide lines for the intending travelers who would
like to book online and simultaneously like to avail this
concession. For example, suppose if I want to book Delhi-Shimla
Volvo Bus with senior citizens' concession, how do I do that? HRTC
Website is silent on this point.

I would like to add here that before posting this thread in IM, I tried to get my quarries replied by HRTC and for which I sent a couple of mails to them. But unfortunately, but quite predictably, there is no reply. Can somebody in IM enlighten me on the above few points?

Thanks & regards.

i had read it somewhere that concessional bookings are only accepted over the reservation counters, but i am unable to find that reference now.

My friend will be doing my bookings for HRTC bus from Chandigarh this Sunday, will ask him to inquire about concession rules.

Online reservation system for HRTC sucks!

I checked with Shimla ISBT and the info I got was that one has to first make a Smart Card to avail the discount.

The Smart Card costs ₹ 50/ and only then can Senior Citizens avail the discount after producing valid proof which has date of birth mentioned on it.

The counter though had no clue whether the smart card could be made in Delhi.

Contact no. for ISBT Shimla inquiry is 0177-2656326
