Soon, a mobile game that teaches railway commuters not to trespass.

11 Mar

To prevent accidents on the suburban railway tracks, the Western Railway (WR) will launch a five-month long anti-trespassing campaign from February 16.

To create awareness among young commuters, especially students, the railway plans to launch a game, which people will be able to download on their phones by June.

In the game, players following rules at suburban stations — such as taking authorised entries and exits, using foot-over bridges and escalators and not alighting from running trains — will be awarded points. Points will be deducted if players flout norms.

Trespassing has long been a serious concern for the railways, with a recent comptroller and auditor general (CAG) report stating that 19,868 (59%) of the 33,445 deaths on suburban section occurred owing to line crossing or trespassing on the tracks.

The railway plans to implement infrastructure to reduce trespassing.
