Demand for more railway coaches, MEMU service
The railway authorities held a meeting with commuters on Thursday to revise train timings.
At the meeting, attended by V C Sudeesh, senior divisional commercial manager of railways; Rajesh Chandran, area manager, and representatives of railway users' association, they discussed means to extend and increase frequency of trains, add and eliminate stoppages, reroute and club trains and change timings of existing trains to benefit commuters.
“We demanded more Memu services and extra coaches in passenger trains,“ said K J Paul Manvettom, president, all Kerala railway users' association, Ernakulam.
“As long-distance trains maintain time, people prefer travelling in these trains. This results in demand for more stops and convenient timings for long distance trains,“ said a senior railway official present at the meeting.
