For the comfort and convenience of passengers, Western Railway is introducing 8 new services on the suburban section, 4 each in Up & Dn direction respectively. The additional services on the Virar sector are being introduced by optimum utilization of existing links. 10 services are also being extended viz. 4 in Up and 6 in Down direction. These changes will come into effect from 10th October, 2016.
Due to major changes in the timings and introduction of new Mail/Express trains in the new Main Line Time Table of Western Zone w.e.f. 1/10/2016, suitable changes were necessary for the existing suburban timetable. Accordingly, 5 existing suburban services have been planned to be cancelled including 4 existing services in up direction and one existing service in down direction. The reasons for a reduction in these existing suburban services have been told as to incorporate the 8 additional services as indicated in the tables as under. Therefore, the number of a daily average of total suburban services on Western Railway will now increase from 1319 to 1322 including 110 harbour services, as 8 new services are being introduced, while 5 are being reduced.
