#grievance During the last many months the Suburban Fast trains from Borivali to Churchgate takes 75 to 85 minutes in the morning hours against its schedule time of 55 minutes, thereby wasting many precious working hours. The Commuters are unable to reach their Offices in time. The Western Railways do not bother to adhere its Timetable of the Suburban trains in the morning Hours. Due to the delay in running of trains, the Commuters are getting irritated and become impatient. Please ensure that the Suburban Fast trains from Borivali should reach Churchgate within 1 Hour.
Current Status : CASE CLOSED
Date of Action : 31 Jan 2014
Details : : Issues raised in your above quoted letter have been examined and position is as under:- In the existing schedule

there are 20 fast trains from Borivali during the morning peak hours. All these fast services follow a particular halt pattern of running. i.e stopping at all stations up to Andheri and further running fast between Andheri -Bandra Dadar-Mumbai central and then slow up to Churchgate. In general the running time given to these trains varies between 55-60 minutes depending upon the availability of berthing facility at Churchgate. In comparison the services have been increased from 1043 in 2007 to 1305 till date. Similarly 12 car services have been increased from 511 to 1165 along with introduction of 15 car services. There are 30-15 car services at present. The increase in services and augmentation has reduced the buffer margins earlier available needed to stabilise services in case of unusual incidences. The services are generally delayed due to effect of rampant alarm chain

though the points pertaining to increase in services is correct but the introduction of 25000 volts AC rakes which have improved pick up capacity should have offset the congestion due to increase in frequency. The same logic was given while increasing the services. The rampant alarm chain inicidence part is totally false. I personally travel daily on this route and can vouch that there is no chain pulling during peak hours on WR.
IR is trying to cover up its failure to improve the infrastructure i.e increase in lines.
second issue is the crossover of trains at goregaon/andheri/santacruz/bandra of these fast locals which lead to congestion. WR should make a plan to for an elevated stretch meant only for crossovers at andheri. Only this can improve the punctuality of locals.

One thing is for sure that travelling on WR during peak hours is the most frustating activity one may find in mumbai if he is a daily commuter.

रेल्वेवर येत्या जुलै महिन्यापासून धावणा-या चर्चगेट-बोरिवली एसी लोकलचं रिटर्न तिकीट ४०० रुपयांच्या आसपास असेल आणि या लोकलचा मासिक पास वगैरे मिळणार नाही, असं सूत्रांकडून समजतं. हे तिकीटभाडं ऐकूनच मध्यमवर्गीयांना घाम फुटणार असल्यानं ते गारेग्गार एसी लोकलच्या वाट्याला कितपत जातील, ही शंकाच आहे.
मुंबईत एसी लोकल धावणार, अशी घोषणा गेल्या रेल्वे बजेटमध्ये झाली होती. तेव्हापासून, मुंबईतील नोकरदार या लोकलची वाट बघतोय. त्याची ही प्रतीक्षा जुलैमध्ये संपण्याची चिन्हं आहेत. कारण, नुकतंच हंगामी रेल्वे बजेट सादर करताना रेल्वेमंत्र्यांनी या लोकलला हिरवा कंदील दाखवला आहे. त्यामुळे या लोकलचं वेळापत्रक आणि त्याच्या तिकीटदरावर पश्चिम रेल्वेच्या अधिका-यांनी विचारविनिमय सुरू केलाय. त्यासाठीच रेल्वे मंडळाचे सदस्य देविप्रसाद पांडे यांनी गेल्या आठवड्यात अधिका-यांशी चर्चा केली.
चर्चगेट-बोरिवली या ३३ किमी अंतरासाठी आज फर्स्ट क्लासचं तिकीट १२० रुपये इतकं आहे. त्यामुळे एसी लोकलचं तिकीट १५० ते २०० च्या बँडमध्ये ठेवावं लागणार आहे. त्यानुसार

चर्चगेट-बोरिवलीचं सिंगल तिकीट १९६ रुपयाच्या आसपास असेल. पर्यायानं, रिटर्न तिकीटासाठी प्रवाशांना ४०० रुपये मोजावे लागू शकतात. स्वाभाविकच, या लोकलचा प्रवास उच्चपदस्थ अधिकारी आणि व्यावसायिकांनाच परवडू शकतो.
परंतु, या एसी लोकलची एक गोम अशीही आहे की, या लोकलचा मासिक पास मिळणार नाहीए. ही सवलत दिल्यास एसी लोकल चालवणं रेल्वे प्रशासनाला शक्यच होणार नाही. आजचं पासाचं गणित पाहिल्यास, पाच सिंगल तिकिटांच्या दरात प्रवाशांना महिन्याचा पास दिला जातो. म्हणजेच, चर्चगेट-बोरिवली फर्स्ट क्लासचं सिंगल तिकीट १२० रुपये आहे आणि त्यांचा महिन्याचा पास ६५५ रुपयांना मिळतो. त्याच पद्धतीनं एसी लोकलचा पास दिला गेल्यास पश्चिम रेल्वेला आर्थिक फटका बसू शकतो.
अर्थात, एसी लोकलचं साप्ताहिक, १५ दिवसांचं आणि मासिक तिकीट देण्याबाबत विचार सुरू असल्याचं रेल्वेच्या अधिका-यानं सांगितलं. पण ते पाससारखं स्वस्त नसेल. त्याचप्रमाणे, एसी लोकलच्या तिकिटासाठी प्रवाशांना रांग लावावी लागू नये, ई-तिकीटचा पर्याय असावा, असाही रेल्वेचा प्रयत्न आहे. यातलं आता काय-काय, कसं-कसं जमतं आणि ही एसी लोकल किती मुंबईकरांचा प्रवास गारेग्गार करते, हे जुलैमध्येच कळेल.
