Good news! Mumbai train travel to become better for travellers and the disabled
October 24, 2017
People travelling in local trains in Mumbai will soon be able to get access to facilities such as more foot overbridges (FOBs), better seating arrangements, water vending machines, ramps for physically disabled travellers and enquiry counters.
All these facilities will be set up over the next six months in railway stations such as Kurla, Ghatkopar, Churchgate, Wadala, Jogeshwari, Belapur and Parel.
The western and central railway officials will organise surveys to understand which stations are accessed by large number of people.
It means the railway stations that are visited by more than two lakh travellers daily are likely to get the new facilities.
