There's a new bus service launched in Delhi. I work for the company that manages it.
I travel almost everyday at least once. Free.
My logic is that
I am a part of the service provider.
I am actually on duty, because I note all deviations from rules, guide the bus drivers and conductors, intervene in case of disputes, collect commuter feedback, etc.
My family says
Public transport is usually not a money making business. The one in Delhi is definitely not. The fact that a private body has been given the opportunity to manage the services is a positive step to attempt to minimize blemishes, and I am making things worse.
I earn enough to pay the fare, which is fairly subsidized.
