Central Railway has decided to increase the number of AC locals on the Main line (CSMT-Kalyan/Titwala /Ambarnath ) with reference to increasing passengers’ demand after slashing fares for single journeys up to 50% . Additional 12 air conditioned services will be introduced on CRs main line from May 14th 2022. These Air condition services will replace currently runnin non air conditioned services of main line. CR has also decided to run 14 services on Sundays and Nominated Holidays also on its main line. Currently on CRs main line air conditioned local services are available only on weekdays. However due less response passengers as compared to main line AC local services presently running on Harbor line will run with normal non-AC rakes from May14th. The 16 Harbor line AC services will run with non-AC rake with effect from May 14th 2022 and as a result AC services will be run only on the Main line from May 14th.
With the increase of 12 AC services on the Main line (CSMT-Kalyan/Titwala /Badlapur) on weekdays the total AC services on the Main line will increase from 44 to 56. However, there will be no increase in the total number of services which will remain 1810 as at present.
Total number of AC services running on the Main line on Sundays/nominated holidays will be 14 from May 14th and the total number of services running on the Main line on Sundays/nominated holidays will increase from 673 to 687.
The total number of services on weekdays on Main line (894), Harbor line (614), Trans-Harbor line (262) and 4th corridor i.e. Belapur/Nerul-Kharkopar line (40) will remain the same i.e. 1810.
