Since its inception, the world’s first “Ladies Special” train has completed its 25 years. The train was dedicated to women passengers to allow them travel safely to and from home and their workplaces.
When Western Railway launched its first dedicated women special train, the same was also acknowledged by various railway zones in country and by the railway authorities of other countries also.
After launch of “Ladies Special” train, Western Railways got much appreciation by women who were till then forced to travel in regular ladies compartment in a cramped manner.
"The 1990s witnessed huge industrial and commercial boom towards south Mumbai with an increase in the number of working women commuting from the suburbs. The Ladies Special trains helped them commute more comfortably and safely."
Ladies special train runs from Churchgate to Borivali to Bhayander, Vasai and Virar.
