“Initially, the public will not be able to get used to or get used to running trains every four minutes. Again we will bring the standing time down to maybe 30 seconds at a time. But if you don’t give a minute or two in the beginning, passengers will get on and off easily, these things won’t happen. For this we will stand longer in the beginning.”
