In Bengaluru, passengers bank on WhatsApp for real-time train updates :-
BENGALURU: How social media savvy is Bengaluru? Even before the clock strikes 8 in the morning, a WhatsApp group of office-goers called 'Train to ITPL (4)' gets flooded with real-time updates on suburban train services. In less than an hour, the 255-member group exchanges not less than 200 to 300 messages, all related to the location of their commute.
The group, among several others, goes mute throughout the day but the interactions resume once it is time to return home from
work ..
Commuter Train Services Jump from 94 to 104 in City
In the past four months, the Bengaluru division of the South Western Railway (SWR) increased the number of commuter train services to 104 from 94. "There is a good patronage for suburban services. We are replacing conventional trains with electric trains in partnership with the state government," RS Saxena, divisional railway manager, Bengaluru, said.
The highest number of train services, suburban in nature, are on the Bengaluru-Whitefield-Bangarpet line, at 28. On the Bengaluru to Tumakuru and Ramanagara lines, there are 18 and 16 trains respectively. While there are ten trains on the Yeshwanthpur-Hosur line, other stretches such as Yesvantpur-Yelahanka-Chikkaballapura and Yesvantpur-Nelamangala have only two to six trains. Over 2 lakh people depend on these services every day.

However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...

The voluntarily posted Blogs, Train/Station Tips, Train/Station Pics, Polls, Train TTs, PNRs, etc. comprise the permanent publicly viewable and searchable repository of IRI. A PUBLIC info website is unlike WhatsApp, FaceBook, Instagram, etc. where people post personal pics and other stuff, which CAN...
