Improved public transport in fight against traffic congestion
The Mumbai million-plus urban agglomeration in India is not known for its clean air. With more spacious trains, equipped with air conditioning, we are making travelling by rail more attractive. Even car drivers now prefer to take the train. This improves air quality and accessibility.
Millions of people take the train each day in Mumbai. This is important in a city having to contend with air pollution and poor accessibility. However, this situation is unsafe and uncomfortable. Because during the trip, it became boiling hot due to the lack of air conditioning.
The customer's challenge
The Indian Railways trains provided space for only 1,700 passengers, while during peak hours as many as 4,500 passengers were forced to share the scarce space in the nine train units.
