Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation Ltd passenger trains
The Mumbai Suburban Railway network caters to 6.3 million commuters everyday. It has the highest passenger density in the World, ahead of even Tokyo and Seoul. Almost half of the total daily passengers using the entire Indian Railway System are from Mumbai Suburban Railway system alone. Mumbai Suburban Railway system, in spite of heavy demands on it, has provided an efficient and reliable service. However, the pressure continues and today it has reached alarming proportions. Overcrowding has grown to such an extent that 5,000 passengers are traveling per 9-car train during peak hours, as against the rated carrying capacity of 1,710. This has resulted in, what is known as, super dense crush load of 14-16 standing passengers per square metre of floor space.
