New Delhi: Senior citizens in the city will no longer have to jostle for a seat in the swanky low-floor DTC buses as government has decided to reserve some seats for them.

Transport Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely said the low-floor DTC buses will soon have seats reserved for the senior citizens.

At present, each low-floor bus has four reserved seats only for women. The general DTC buses have two reserved seats for the senior citizens.

The DTC, which runs the world's largest fleet of CNG buses, have been procuring low-floor buses as part of its efforts to modernise programme.

Officials said during next year's Commonwealth Games, the DTC will have a fleet of 5,000 low-floor buses.
