Railways has launched ‘Yatri Mitra Sewa’ to facilitate access to wheelchairs, battery operated cars and porter services to make rail travel comfortable for elderly, differently-abled and ailing travellers. The service is made available at major railway stations across the country. Passengers can easily avail the service at the time of online booking of tickets, by calling or messaging ‘139’, or accessing an app developed by the Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS), or by simply dialling a dedicated mobile phone number to be activated for the purpose.
