So, how will you, as a fully vaccinated person, get the travel pass? We have the answer to your question right here
How to Get the Travel Pass for Mumbai Local trains?
As mentioned above, one way to get your passes is through an app. This app is yet to be launched. You will be able to get monthly train passes as well as download them only after verification.
If you do not have a smartphone, you can go to a ward office or any train station, and they will have a photo pass available. For authenticity and security purposes, a QR code will be on every pass.
Though Mumbai trains will resume function, it is beyond important to remember that the pandemic is still far from over. A decline in cases is good. But, this situation can take a turn for the worse if we as people do not realize our responsibilities.
CM Uddhav Thackeray also said, “COVID-19 has not gone; it’s still here. To control the spread, we have to follow COVID-19 protocols and increase vaccination. We can vaccinate up to 15 lakhs per day. We have already vaccinated up to 8 lakh people on a single day.”
We must still follow all the safety procedures. Adequate precautions to prevent an outbreak that leads to a rise in numbers all over again are vital.
