I am a student of engineering, which is located in Boisar(Theem college of Engineering). I live in ANDHERI and most of the students of our college come from Mumbai side. One of my classmates comes from Dombivali. So, we students have to spend 5 hours in travelling itself. Also there are no sufficient autorickshaws in Boisar, so as to reach the station(there are total 240 students presently. While leaving the college in evening when we reach the station at 5.15pm we, we have to wait more than half an hour for the train to come and it is rush. There is so much interval of time between the arrival of trains (going towards Mumbai) at Boisar station. After one train is gone, the other train comes 1 hour after the previous train. Hence we do not get much time for study. Till we reach home, it is already 8 pm.If there are local trains from Dadar to Karjat so why cant there be local trains from Churchgate to Dahanu in every 15 mins.
The names of the trains (going towards Mumbai from Boisar station) and their timings are as follows :-
1) Virar shuttle ----> 3:18 pm
2) Saurashtra express ----> 4:28 pm
3) Firozpur express ----> 5:40 pm
4) Bandra intercity express ----> 6:22 pm
(Our college usually ends at 5 pm, but sometimes they even leave us at 3pm or 4 pm)
So, please Sir, it is my humble request to increse the number of trains between 3 to 6 pm at Boisar station OR start the Churchgate- Dahanu Local trains as soon as possible OR increase number of Memu locals. Please, this is affecting our studies, this message is from all the students
