Battery-operated cars at Mumbai terminus for elderly, disabled people
April 5, 2018
To provide a smooth, hassle-free movement for senior citizens, pregnant women, and disabled people, the Central Railways has started two battery-operated cars at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT).
The service has been launched keeping in mind the needs of long-distance passengers.
These vehicles will soon be launched at Kurla, Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT), and Dadar stations as well, from where long-distance trains depart. Four more battery-operated cars will be purchased.
The car looks like a golf cart and can accommodate four to six people with hand luggage. The service needs to be booked before leaving for the station. Then the car will be ready near the taxi stand.
The service is only for senior citizens, pregnant women, and disabled people. The charge per trip is Rs 40.
Every day, at least 47 pairs of long-distance trains arrive and depart from CSMT. There are 10 platforms dedicated to long-distance trains that depart from CSMT station every day. Rail authorities will be charging the battery from time to time.
