26 December, 2017, 06:17 | Author: Katrina Soto
"We are replacing 12 regular train services with the AC rake".
The development was described as "historical" for Mumbai's lifeline, the suburban train network, which started in 1867 when the first local train was hauled by a steam engine. At the Churchgate end, the first and 12th coaches have been earmarked for ladies; seven seats in second and 11th coaches have been allotted to senior citizens, and 10 seats in fourth and seventh coaches have been earmarked for Divyangs (those with disabilities).
3 fast services have been scheduled between Churchgate and Borivali, which will halt at Mumbai Central, Dadar, Bandra and Andheri stations, in both directions.

The fare for AC local is comparatively higher than that of the 1st class tickets of a normal local.
Unlike the usual "local" trains in Mumbai that feature commuters precariously hanging out of open doors, their air-conditioned counterparts will have automatic doors that shut completely before the rake begins pulling out of the station, Ravinder Bhakar, Chief Public Relations Officer, WR said. "The guard controls the door closures and openings in the AC local train". On average, ten deaths of persons falling from Mumbai's local trains are reported each day. The final fare chart will be out on Sunday. "However as an introductory offer for a period of initial six months, the base fare of single journey of AC EMU shall be charged 1.2 times of the base fare of existing fare of single journey first class ticket". SPECIAL TICKET/PASS The most common cause for confusion among commuters was whether the regular train pass could be used for the AC local.
To make passengers aware of the facilities and services, Western Railway officials will be on the trains until 29th December. "Out of 12 services of the AC local train, eight will run as fast local trains between Churchgate and Virar, stopping only at major stations like Mumbai Central, Dadar, Bandra, Andheri, Borivali, Bhayander & Vasai Road in both directions", the WR statement said. "Like metros, women can occupy seats in the remaining coaches apart from those earmarked for them".
