Local Train Problem for Vasai Virar Citizens

This petition had 3,174 supporters

It is becoming very difficult for people from Vasai Virar region to catch Virar Local trains during the morning & evening peak hours due to the heavy rush. Sometimes people fall down & get seriously injured also. There are also cases of people falling down from over crowded trains & losing their lives.

So requesting you to increase the frequency of Local Trains (Virar) during the peak hours. Start more local trains from Virar, Vasai & Bhayander during the morning peak hours. Also start more Virar local trains from Dadar, Bandra, Andheri & Borivili during the evening peak hours since most of the people working in the suburbs find it very difficult to catch the overcrowded Virar Trains coming from Churchgate.

Also requesting you to change the timings of outstation trains so that they don't run during peak hours. These trains sometimes disrupt & delay the regular schedule of the local trains & create more crowding problems.

People from Vasai Virar region do not have any other regular public mode of transport to reach Mumbai. They are totally dependent on the local trains.  

Due to overcrowding, people travelling by Virar Trains are totally stressed out when they reach their office in the morning & the same thing happens when they come back home late in the evening.

So keeping the above things in mind, we request you to find a long lasting solution to our problem at the earliest so that we all can travel safely & comfortably.
