“For graduates and recent graduates, BEST has introduced a special student concession bus pass. They would receive passes good for 100 travels totaling Rs 999 for Rs 500. Beginning on August 22, 2022, the passes can be purchased online through the “BEST Chalo app” or at the closest bus depot” , the BEST Bus Transportation tweeted.
