MUMBAI: With 23 pairs of long distance trains operating in phases from June 1 from CSMT, Dadar, Mumbai Central, Bandra Terminus and LTT, there will be a rush of passengers trying to reach or leave the stations. The transport department on Sunday issued a statement allowing kaali-peelis to pick up and drop passengers at these railway stations.
An RTO official said that there will be a ‘point-person’ from taxi unions at all stations. “You can book a taxi at the station, or call or WhatsApp the point-person to book a ride,” he said. The contact person for CSMT, Mumbai Central and Dadar is Chandrashekar Nair (9821640498), for LTT Shashi Dube (9833080800), and for Bandra Terminus Ravi Devadiga (9029885938).
Not including the driver, a five-seater taxi can carry two passengers only, and a seven-seater taxi can carry four passengers only. Passengers must wear masks and sanitize compulsorily.
