Did You Know: Mumbai's suburban trains are designed to be greener and smoother?


With 6.3 million passengers traveling per day, Indian Railways had a vision of developing a world-class infrastructure in Mumbai suburban railways, which would provide a comfortable and reliable railway system. Amongst the various innovations brought to life, the installation of an intelligent braking system developed by Siemens ensures that passengers enjoy a jerk-free ride while reducing carbon footprint.

The new trains save energy by almost 30% with Siemens’ innovative regenerative braking technology that transfers energy back to the grid during braking, resulting in substantial saving in the energy costs. Needless to say, this concept of electrical propulsion helps in the environment protection.​
