Pay double for AC local travel

Pay double for AC local travel

Manufactured by the Integral Coach Factory, Chennai, the full AC air-suspension coaches have a capacity of carrying almost 6,000 commuters per rake, automatic door opening-closing system, LED lights, Emergency Talk Back system between commuters and guard besides a public address system, advanced GPS-based passenger information systems, speeds of upto 100 kmph, air-tight vestibules inter-connecting all 12 coaches, other modern amenities and the latest safety features for commuters. "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".

Initially, the suburban rakes had only four coaches, and later upgraded to nine cars in 1958, but as passenger traffic increased, the WR converted all rakes to 12 cars from 1990, and introduced the first 15-car rakes - the longest suburban trains, from November 2009. We have set a minimum time of 20 seconds and a maximum time of 40 seconds stoppage at each station to allow commuters to get accustomed to this system. The AC train will depart from Borivali station instead of Andheri station and will head to Churchgate.

The first service of the air-conditioned local will be flagged off by Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal at 2.10 pm on Monday from Churchgate railway station. "One slow service of the AC local will operate between Mahalaxmi to Borivali", the statement added.

Washington responds after Jerusalem vote, cuts budget to UN
Trump on Wednesday had blamed several nations of taking help from U.S. and not returning the favour when needed. In her speech at the United Nations General Assembly, Haley said, "America will put its embassy in Jerusalem".

Excited commuters captured the historic moments by clicking selfies the moment train reached the Churchgate station at 11.16 am. Railway Protection Force (RPF) constables will be in each coach to ensure security. PLATFORM INDICATORS Adding to the confusion was the fact that the indicators at the platforms do not have any special indication to say that the AC local is expected on the platform.

What are the challenges in operating the AC local train? Reportedly there were teething issues with door closures during trials.

The Ladies and Senior Citizen compartments will be configured differently from other rakes.
