Booking tickets for the local Pune-Lonavala and Pune- Daund trains has become a tad bit easier, with an Android application heading to the city straight from Mumbai. The passengers can now reserve their seats from the unreserved ticketing system (UTS) app, instead of heading for booking counters which are often marred by long queues.
“The idea behind introducing this app is the reliving commuters from queues. They will simply have to download UTS developed by Centre for Railway Information System (CRIS). Upon signing up, they will have to visit the ticket window to recharge the electronic wallet with Rs 100 in order to use it,” said senior divisional commercial manager Krishnath Patil of Pune railway division.
You will have to take a paperless ticket (GPS Enabled Only) @ Sion station till DR & either take a train or get out of the station, sorry for the late response!

Pimpri Chinchwad: With the overhead electrification work nearing completion on the Pune-Daund railway line, suburban train commuters travelling to and fro between Daund and Lonavla can now look forward to travel directly between the two destinations without having to get down in Pune to change trains.
Rail Vikas Nigam Limited, which is carrying out the work, has said that the overhead traction wires will be energized (25,000 volts, 50 Hz, AC) from June 30. However, EMU (electric multiple unit) rakes will start running on the Pune-Daund stretch after inspection by the railway safety commissioner is completed. This will take at least four to six months.
4 to 6 month times taken by RVNL is too much.At least 4 to 6 weeks these short of works can be commissioned effectively for the benefits of Daund to Lonavala through passenger.
No one is bothered to do something for the people of this region
Good step although delayed.
Not much relief will be there to the suburban travellers unless the Pune-Lonavala third line is completed.
Good news and a ray of hope is that the rate of commissioning of capacity augmentation projects in IR have currently picked up to 8 kms per day and efforts are on to increase it to 10 kms/day.
