Mar 28 2017 (07:58)   Good response to Hassan-Yeshwantpur train

The Hassan-Yeshwantpur intercity express train, on its first regular service on Monday, saw a good response. The train was almost packed and the departure was delayed by 15 minutes as the railway staff had difficulty in handling the crowd at the ticket counter.
This train was first announced in 1996 when H.D. Deve Gowda was Prime Minister.
Everyday, hundreds of people travel to Bengaluru from Hassan. Considering the number of passengers, the Hassan division of Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) had introduced non-stop buses at every half-an-hour in the mornings. With the
introduction of the train services, the KSRTC buses saw a poor response on the first day.
The officials of the corporation are studying the impact of the train services on the bus service.
Naveen Kumar, a resident of Hassan, “We are glad that now Hassan is connected to Bengaluru through a railway line. And, the timing of the intercity train is apt. Many people can travel by the morning train and return by evening. We have been waiting for this service for two decades,” he said.
The passengers had difficulty in getting tickets as only two counters were open on the day. The timing of the inter-city express train clashes with that of the Arsikere-Mysuru train. “As passengers of two trains have to wait in queue for tickets, it is difficult to manage the staff. The officers should open more counters and increase the number of ticket vending machines,” said Prakash, also a passenger.
The train journey to the State capital in the superfast express costs Rs. 85 and would be Rs. 100 in case of reservation.
“The bus fare is Rs. 192 (Rs. 200 for non-stop buses). The train journey works out cheaper than the bus and takes a lesser amount of time. The KSRTC will definitely see the impact on its revenue with the introduction of this train,” opined Prashanth, another passenger.

DVG-BAY would be more appropriate ICE or even DVG-GTL.

Good decision but need to increase rake size from 11.
56579 cancelled. The train all these days was operated mainly to avoid parking headache at SBC. It arrived at SBC at around 12:30 or so and sent to NMGA and returned a bit late (deliberately) to SBC and again sent to YPR to go to Salem - all managed such that the halt at SBC was just 10 mins or so. Now it needs to parked at SBC or YPR from 12:30 to some 15:45 when it will be taken to YPR

Adding an extra SL would have been ideal, since it is very tough to get a confirmed booking during the weekends in this train either ways. I am a frequent traveler in Hampi between SBC-BAY and vice-versa. Nevertheless, a good news as my wife and kids travel AC most of the times, when travelling alone and now they have a very good chance of getting confirmed bookings, on the eleventh hour too, with more number of 3rd AC Coaches. Glad, Hampi is getting bigger and mightier by the day.
