On top of that, SBC-BYPL one is completely ridiculous. Why does SWR think it'll get good patronage, when already metro exists between these two stns, which runs with better punctuality. Much better route would have been SBC-YNK via YPR, where there's no metro. Some times I wonder if these planning is done by LKG kids.

The existing MEMUs other than peak hour ones run almost empty. Now these ones from tomorrow too, in middle of day are gonna be flop. There is one DEMU from YPR to HSRA - that too same story, totally empty. Just started for election reason, believing IT crowd are the only electorate who will come out and vote in droves.
