The number of monorail services on the Chembur-Wadala-Jacob Circle route in Mumbai will go up by 24 to touch 142 during weekdays after a rake was added to the fleet, the MMRDA said on Thursday.

In a series of social media messages, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority said this increase means a service will begin every 15 minutes against the the current 18 minutes on weekdays on the 19.74 kilometre corridor.

It will reduce wait time and increase convenience, the MMRDA said on X, formerly Twitter.
