The local train has automatic door opening-closing system, LED lights, Emergency Talk Back System between commuters and guard beside a public address system, advanced GPS-based passenger information systems, air-tight vestibules inter-connecting all 12 coaches and other modern amenities including the latest safety features for commuters. A senior official said it is the city's first air-conditioned local train, a first for the entire country-which will start running from Monday. At the Churchgate end, the first and 12th coaches have been earmarked for ladies; seven seats in second and 11th coaches have been allotted to senior citizens, and 10 seats in fourth and seventh coaches have been earmarked for Divyangs (those with disabilities).

Fares on the air-conditioned "local" has been priced at 1.2 times the first class ticket for the first six months.

In its maiden journey, the AC coaches will ferry passengers from Churchgate to Borivali for the first week, and from Churchgate to Virar from the next. In the initial week, only six services of the local have been planned between Churchgate and Borivali. As per the current plans, of these 12 daily services, eight will be operated as "fast trains" on the congested Churchgate-Virar (Palghar) sector, three between Churchgate-Borivali, both with halts only at major stations, while one will ply as a slow service halting at all stations between Mahalaxmi-Borivali. PLATFORM INDICATORS Adding to the confusion was the fact that the indicators at the platforms do not have any special indication to say that the AC local is expected on the platform.

This comes to an average minimum fare of Rs 60 and maximum of Rs 205 per single journey, and a monthly season ticket fare of between Rs 570 and Rs 2,070 for a commuter.

In an effort to provide security to passengers travelling by AC locals, the WR will deploy suitable number of RPF constables in each coach of this train.

The AC trains will replace 12 existing non-air conditioned services - six services in up and six in down direction. Reportedly there were teething issues with door closures during trials.
