The major stastions which has these ATVMs are -- 39 at Thane station, 33 at Kalyan, 24 at Dombivli, 24 at Kurla, 22 at Mulund, 22 at Ghatkopar, 19 at Dadar, 17 at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus and more than 10 ATVMs at Byculla, Sion, Vidhyavihar, Kanjurmarg, Bhandup, Kalva, Mumbra, Diva, Ulhasnagar, Ambarnath, Badlapur, Vadala Road, Mankhurd, Vashi, Sanpada, Nerul and Panvel.
