AdvertisementSince the beginning of monsoon season in Mumbai, local trains, which are known to be the city’s lifeline, are delayed.
Heavy showers in India’s financial capital lead to water-logging at a number of places including railway tracks, slowing down the movement of trains, and even buses and cabs on the road.
Many commuters get stuck while attempting to travel back home during peak hours, or seek refuge at a friend or relative’s house near their workplace.
"Having lived in Mumbai for a decade, I have been through the stress of travelling back home during heavy downpour and waterlogging. Over the past week, we’ve seen heavy rains lash the city almost every day, leading to disrupted traffic movement and waterlogging across major parts of the city,” said Shreerang Godbole, SVP - product and chief service officer of OYO.

Stranded Mumbaikars can book an OYO near them at a 60% discount with the coupon code ‘MumbaiRain’.
