Western Railway (WR) has made a significant upgrade to its local trains by installing dynamic digital display boards to enhance the travel experience for Mumbaikars.

According to Vineet Abhishek, WR's new chief public relations officer, the innovative feature aims to provide passengers with clear and immediate identification of the train's destination. This is expected to result in a more convenient and informed journey across Mumbai's Suburban network.

The new installations feature eight digital displays, four on each side of a train rake, offering a panoramic view of crucial travel information. These displays will toggle between English, Hindi, and Marathi every three seconds, showing train destinations and whether the train is fast or slow with 12 or 15 cars. According to Abhishek, the response from passengers has been positive, and WR plans to equip more rakes with these displays soon. WR operates over 1,300 suburban services daily, serving about 30 lakh commuters between Churchgate in South Mumbai and Dahanu in Maharashtra's Palghar district.
