Due to heavy rains and the subsequent water logging, train services on the suburban network of Central Railway’s Main and Harbour line were badly hit, with most trains suspended and others delayed.
The Railways had, incidentally, advised commuters not to travel by trains at all unless it was absolutely necessary.
For the convenience of passengers, it also tweeted out that the city’s bus service had been advised to arrange for extra vehicles to transport commuters to areas that trains weren’t able to reach.
