Trespassing on railway tracks is a major cause of deaths on Mumbai suburban rail network. There have been several campaigns to raise awarenessa among  Mumbai locals about using foot-over-bridges instead of crossing railway tracks. But no significant change is seen after earlier campaigns.

Central Railway has launched an initiative 'Ek Safar Rail Ke Saath', where celebrities will share their experience about Indian Railways and their journey in a short film. At the end of the film, they will give a message for railway commuters.
