Indian Railways initiates first-of-its-kind Tetra-based MTRS for Mumbai local trains

All services plying from Churchgate to Virar will now use this new black box technology to enhance safety and punctuality.

Lowest call set-up time made possible with Tetra based MTRS

The Tetra-based mobile train radio communication system has been designed to improve logistical issues on the Western Line subsection from Churchgate to Virar. It will help create a network of communication between motorman or guard and controller or station master. This, in turn, will facilitate coordination between cabs and cab of different EMUs (electric multiple units).

The system's USP is its low-call set-up time- the lowest among all such communication systems in Mumbai. This paves way for bettered connectivity, promoting faster communication and improved coordination. This will help to identify the cause of delays and minimise them. Moreover, the safety of commuters will soar higher with the system in place, read reports
