MUMBAI: Local train commuters on the Harbour line will be able to travel in air-conditioned (AC) comfort from Wednesday when 12 AC train services will be launched on the line.
Also, all services from CSMT and Panvel that used to run up to Andheri will now be extended to Goregaon from the same day. Central Railway (CR) general manager Anil Kumar Lahoti made this announcement on Sunday. The first AC train service on Harbour line will operate in the morning from Vashi to CSMT.
Sanpada resident Akshay Sawant, a regular train commuter, said this is good news for daily office-goers. “So far, only the Main and Trans-Harbour lines had AC services. Now those on the Harbour line can travel from Navi Mumbai to south Mumbai in AC comfort,”he said.
The AC train will operate from Monday through Saturday. On Sundays and other holidays, it will be replaced by non-AC trains. Based on demand, the AC train services could be increased and also run on holidays, officials said.
The final fare chart for daily tickets and passes on Harbour line will be released on Monday, an official said, adding that the Harbour line had been given the clearance to run AC trains more than a year ago, but the plan was delayed due to the two lockdowns.
The total daily services on Harbour line will be 614 while Transharbour will operate 262 services.
