In a surprising find, CSMT ranks well below Thane station in terms of commuter load

Thane station is by far the most crowded station on Central Railway, while CSMT is the last on the list of the top five busiest stations on the Central Railway. As per official findings, stations including Kurla, Ghatkopar and Kalyan are the the ones who are the top five stations, as per the number of passengers recorded travelling everyday.

Central Railway consists of a total of 85 stations and of these, the afore mentioned five stations are the five who handle the most commuters. “Earlier, CSMT and  Dombivli were the most crowded stations. However, in 2017, Thane has been recorded as the busiest station on the Central line,” said an official from Central Railways.

According to the official, Central Railways provides 1,706 local train services daily, transporting around 72 lakh passengers daily. However, from Thane, a total of 2,58,363 commuters travel every day. Kalyan records 2,08,801; Ghatkopar 1,90,458 commuters; Kurla records 1,57,641 of commuters and CSMT being the Terminus and main station, has recorded lesser figures compared to the four stations, with 1,44,582 commuters.

“Thane being one of the main stations of suburban section of Mumbai division of Central Railway, connects the Trans-harbour line and attracts a large number of passengers daily. However, taking note of the large number of crowds, a larger number of escalators and lifts are being contructed on these stations compared to other stations on CR,” said Sunil Udasi, Chief Public Relation Officer, Central Railway.
