4 years later, Railways does a U-turn, says passengers prefer sitting
| Wednesday | 11th September, 2019
Almost four years after introducing local trains with limited seats — so as to make space for more passengers who can stand and travel — the Railways will be scrapping them.
The Central Railway is in the last stage of refitting seats in two remaining trains of such kind which operate on the Harbour line.
Senior railway officials claim that commuters are unhappy and prefer seats, particularly for long-distance travel.
"We will be seen sending them for POH where the seats removed, will be once again fitted," said a CR official.
"Passengers were finding it difficult to travel long distance with limited seats inside coaches and so standee coaches had more or less failed," said Subhash Gupta, president, Rail Yatri Parishad.
