New Year eve brought cheers to Central Railway as the AC local ridership crossed 1crore (10,000,664) during the period from April to December 2022.

The overwhelming response of passengers opting for AC local is due to the fact that it offers safe and cool ride to the passengers.  The Ministry of Railways has also slashed the fares of daily tickets up to 50% from May 2022. In September 2022, Railways have facilitated First class Quarterly, Half yearly and Yearly season ticket holders to travel in AC EMU by paying the difference of fare between first class quarterly, half yearly and yearly season tickets and AC quarterly, half yearly and yearly season tickets for the entire period irrespective of the days left in First Class QST, HST and YST.
