Chief minister Sheila Dikshit said her government has decided to upgrade the existing bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor to make it more comfortable and accessible to use for the disabled.

Dikshit said directions have been issued to ensure "disabled and elderly friendly features" in all the upcoming government buildings.

"We in city government are aspiring to make Delhi a caring city for one and all especially for the elderly and disabled," Dikshit said in her opening remarks at the inaugural session of TRANSED 2012, a four-day 13th International Conference on Mobility and Transport for Elderly and Disabled. The conference is being organised by NGO Swayam in association with Delhi government, UD ministry, Canadian Transportation Agency and Transportation Research Board, USA.
