Why not more electric cars for senior citizens?Between 6AM to 9AM some ten trains depart to various destinations from Chennai Central, one of the busiest stations in the Indian Railways. There are a few electric cars that transport the senior citizens, and these seem to be sponsored by some organization.
However, the 70 plus senior citizens need more. Just this morning, I found at least six of them making inquiries where the cars are. They were in operation on some other platform and could not reach platform 3, where I could spot these senior citizens.
I think a lot more cars are needed in such places. The Railways have to appeal to organizations to sponsor them. The huge retail shops in T.Nagar, that make record sales and profits might be happy to help if the initiative is taken. There should be at least three per platform and there should be volunteers to guide the senior citizens. Of course, there were some young boys who alerted the police and then I was told that the old people were transported.
However, get this right is an urgent priority.
