After two fully AC trains, Mumbai suburban to go with mixed coaches By Ananya Sengupta
(PTI) The Indian Railways is likely to go with trains having both AC and non-AC coaches in Mumbai due to resistance from passengers towards higher ticket price.
Currently, there are two fully air-conditioned (AC) trains running on local suburb network in Mumbai.
Chairman Railway Board V K Yadav said that after the two AC locals introduced by the Central and Western Railways for Mumbai’s suburban network, stakeholders discussions have revealed that there is some opposition to the trains as there is a resistance towards higher ticket prices.
“The local population is opposing the fully AC trains, citing the expense factor. Negotiations are ongoing and we are thinking of going with a six AC and six non-AC combination or a three AC and nine non-AC combination,” Yadav said, adding that five fully AC trains are already ready with the railways.
