ID card: Please note that an amount of Rs.25 will be charged extra to obtain an ID card for all the above passes. This card will be valid for 1 year. Since the bus passes are not transferable, the ID cards are to ensure this policy. The ID card will have the details of the holder including photo, name, sex, age, address, phone number, etc., and a unique ID number which has to match with the ID number in the pass. It is very important to carry this card along with the pass, or else the pass can be dismissed as invalid by the TSRTC staff. This card should be shown every month, while renewing the bus pass.
