In Mumbai, Western Railways will run a total of 500 suburban train services from September 21, an increase from the 350 currently on the tracks amid the coronavirus outbreak. The suburban trains in operation now are only for the frontline staff and essential service workers as laid down by the state government, and a QR code-empowered ticketing mechanism is in place for those who need to board the train.

Sumit Thakur, the chief public relations officer of WR said in order to maintain social distancing and avoid overcrowding, Western Railway has taken the decision to increase the number of daily special suburban services from 350 to 500. Of the increased services, 30 will be operated during morning peak hours, and 29 services during evening peak hours. All commuters have been requested to follow social distancing norms and wear masks while travelling in local trains.
