India’s first Monorail at Mumbai between Wadala and Chembur
These days’ travelling has become a part in every walk of life. Hundreds and Thousands of people travel through different means to reach their destination in the specified time. Out of many cities in India, One of the busiest crowded city is Mumbai where Metro rails did not reach to passengers expectation as it takes longer time to reach the destination station.Mono rail stands on the top to reach passengers expectations.
India’s first Mono rail commenced its operations on February 1st,2014 after a delay of 2 years. And it has got a good response from passengers too. This is the first phase of mono rail between Wadala and Chembur section which is 8.8km long line.
The fares are between Rs.5-11.It can carry 2300 passengers at every 15 minutes. Presently mono rail operates between 7am to 3PM with 4 coaches at a frequency of 15min and based on passengers response frequency will be increased and there will be change in time too. Travel time between Wadala and Chembur has been reduced to almost half. It took 21 min instead of 40min.
On the first day 20000 commuters got a chance to take a ride in mono rail. Few of Mumbaians had a bad experience as Ticket Vending Machines surprised them, didn’t accept the new one rupee coins. As TVM’s were designed 3 years back where the new one rupee coins have got a minimum circulation.
Overall a different experience for commuters.
