Warming up to the A/C locals

Friday, February 02, 2018

Apropos to A/C trains getting a lukewarm response from commuters in Mumbai. I think the railways could improve the situation with a small change. Two hurdles to increased traffic are the price of tickets and inconvenience of services since A/C services have replaced the regular services putting additional pressure on the already crowded trains. I suggest that railways could simply add three A/C coaches to regular services and make them 15 coach trains. This will mean that commuters do not miss their connections and avoid over crowding. Those who want to travel in A/C coaches would not have to wait for long time between services. Trains could halt only on platforms that have already been extended to handle 15 coach trains.Increased traffic could be incentivised by reduction in single journey and season ticket fare.
