During return journey, the train will depart Kochuveli at 5pm on Sunday and arrive at KR Puram at 8.45am between April 28 and June 30.Following the assault against passengers in Suresh Kallada Travels, passengers travelling between Bengaluru and Kerala have been demanding more state-run buses and train services.

Fridays from Bengaluru to Kerala and on Sundays from Kerala to Bengaluru. However, the private bus lobby is allegedly pressurising railways not to operate enough trains on these days. Passengers have asked railways to make Kochuveli-Banaswadi Humsafar bi-weekly express a daily train and extend it to Mysuru if there is any congestion at terminal stations in Bengaluru. Also, the arrival timing of Humsafar express is 10:45am in Banaswadi, which doesn’t suit the office-goers, forcing passengers to depend on private operators. There are several complaints against private operators fleecing customers during weekends and festival seasons and also misbehaving with passengers.
