For passengers coming by Yeshvantapur bound trains from south this is a boon especially for south Bangalore and east bangalore residents especially if you are taking the bus then even for city passengers as bus stop is just outside the station on Pf-4 exit- Following city bus routes available
Towards Hoodi- 304,306 series buses
To Kadugodi- 319 series buses
To majestic you have buse son 304, 305,306,319C etc regularly-some suffixes go to market while a few go to majestic
How to reach SBC from KJM , Train, Bus or Auto
which mode is easiest and shortest ...
Suppose I reach KJM by 16339 at around 1000 hrs, if train is in time
Wouldnt provide an auto- Taking majestic bound bus (304, 319C and many others with board as Kempegowda bus stand/Majestic/KBS) is a better option as trains arent frequent at that time
Even 500BC,500N go towards banashankari and even plenty of private bus operators operate bus up to banashankari but I don't recommend using the private buses as they put very loud music which is very disturbing and use the private bus as last option if there are no BMTC buses available.
KIAS-8,KIAS-8C routes available towards airport
For going to majestic it is better to buy an unreserved ticket and board a MEMU/passenger or an UR coach of express train as it is very cheap and faster option.
Agreed...Airport services are best...bit of high fare but you can count on them to reach places on time...KJM is a place wer massive traffic jam occurs....if you could skip it....rest way will be smoother...!!!
@KJM-> if you are in the last 2 compartments of this train ( unreserved ones ) ..make sure that when getting down at KJM at pf #3 , these dont come on platform and people have to deboard on the ground level itself ..be careful !!!
Not useful dude!!! It comes on PF4,which is bigger than PF3....
dude , this tip was given when i was travelling in it ...
Path connecting platform 4 and platform 3 at the western end of the station. It is used as an alternative to the overhead walkway. Photo taken from Platform 3.
Note: It goes without saying that the overhead walkway is a safer option. If you really must use this path, keep an eye out for trains and locos. There's more traffic than usual of the latter kind as there is a diesel shed at KJM.
However,is it not very unsafe for passengers to use this path,as there will be passing trains/locos?
Yes. Added a note. Thanks.
Also halting trains stop before this connecting path. As a result few of the coaches at the rear are out of the platform.
Travelling from SBC (Bangalore) falls in RL (Remote Location) quota. But if you book it from KGI (Kengeri) it would be GN quota. Njoy confirmed tickets. And you can board at SBC since they are only 12 kms apart.
Plus,TTEs board at SBC only. General coaches will be full from MYS though,nay Chamrajanagar
even though KGI is GN quota it has only 2.5 coaches under GN quota and SBC being in RL has 4 coaches. Half coach is for HO and tatkal. Cancellation from Bangalore are more hence chances of confirming is more in RLWL in this particular train
Also extra coach is generally attached to this train (S7) at Bangalore only and forms part of Bangalore quota only- also more chances of cancellation are from Bangalore- so if availability is there book from KGI- or else from SBC only
Now Change of Boarding Station is allowed since 1st October 2013.
How does this affect your suggestion.
you can change the boarding point at the PRS as well, if you didn't do at the time of booking.
cancellations are very less here sir. This is the only decent night train between SBC and TPTY
Very useful info for passengers. Thanks a lot for sharing here.
Very useful. Hope the data is updated periodically as CC's might change somtimes.
