For the comfort and convenience of passengers, Western Railway is introducing 8 new services o­n the suburban section, 4 each in Up & Dn direction respectively.

As per some other changes, five existing suburban services have been decided to be short terminated, while the timings and the paths of some of the existing suburban services will also be changed due to speeding up of existing Mail/ Express trains, to ease congestion during peak hours, reduction of diversions, revision in the departure timings of Mail/ Express trains and adjustments for additional suburban services.

            Similarly as 19024 Firozpur Janta Express will be speeded up, the duration of its halt at Borivali is reduced and its regulation at Andheri has been away with and hence it will arrive at Mumbai Central at 19:35 hrs instead of 20:10 hours.  To accommodate 19024 at Dadar, Train No. BO 90878 will be dealt o­n Pf-6 instead of Pf-5
