South Western Railway (SWR) is improving the connectivity between the two cities --Mysuru and Bengaluru-- by introducing several new trains for the benefit of commuters.
In another addition to its fleet of trains between the two cities, SWR has announced the introduction of a daily service of yet another Main Line Electric
Multiple Units (MEMU) train from Mysuru to Yelahanka in Bengaluru.
The service was launched from Mysuru on (December 16) Monday. The MEMU train will leave Yelahanka on December 17 on its first journey.
In all, 34 trips commute between Mysuru and Bengaluru every day, including the weekly trains, that are bound for other states. Several trains have been extended from Bengaluru to Mysuru, like the Chennai-KSR Bengaluru-Chennai up to Mysuru. The average daily footfall at Mysuru railway station is 60,000, according to railway sources.
The train number 06561 (MEMU) will depart from Yelahanka at 2.30 am. It reaches Yeshwantpur at 2.53 am. It departs at 2.55 am and reaches Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna station at Bengaluru city at 3.08 am and departs at 3.10 am.
It reaches Kengeri at 3.23 am, and departs at 3.25 am and reaches Mandya at 4.05 am. It departs Mandya at 4.07 am and arrives at Mysuru at 5.35 am.
On the return, the train (MEMU) number 06562 Mysuru-Yelahanka Memu special will depart Mysuru at 10.20 pm and reach Mandya at 11.13 pm. It departs Mandya at 11.15 pm and reaches Kengeri at 12.15 am. It departs Kengeri at 12.17 am and reaches KSR Bengaluru city at 12.45 am. It departs KSR Bengaluru City at 12.50 am and reaches Yeshwantpur at 1.03 am. It departs Yeshwantpur at 1.05 am and reaches Yelahanka at 1.30 am.
MP Prathap Simha flagged off the new MEMU train at the Mysuru railway station at 10.20 pm on Monday.
The services are expected to bring succour to a large number of people from Mysuru, who start their inward and onward journey by international flights from Kempegowda International Airport.
Special bogies
Earlier, MP A Sumalatha inaugurated two special coaches for women in the Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (Memu) train, for the benefit of women employees, commuting between Mysuru and Bengaluru, on October 31, at Mandya railway station. The coaches are painted pink to enable the women to identify them for a safe and comfortable journey.

Very odd time of arrival and departure at yelahanka no body will board this train , and ticket counter will be closed at this time and staff will be in deep sleep,
In my opinion hup sbc memu should extend to Mysore directly as they is a memu service to Mysore from sbc at 9.20 am daily,

Or what they should do is since this train is being advertised as a train for airport bound passengers they should open a Railway UR ticket counter at KIA.And feeder buses should be provided by BMTC from KIA to Yelahanka Railway station

Right, unless there is bus facility available after midnight at 1:30 am, this commuter train will not be much useful, same buses can drop passengers also to Ynk station for return train at 2:30 am to Mysuru.

ಮಧ್ಯಾಹ್ನ 12ಕ್ಕೆ ಯಲಹಂಕ ಬರುವ ಮಾಲ್ಗುಡಿ ರೈಲಿಗೇ ಏರ್ಪೋರ್ಟ್ ಸಂಪರ್ಕ ಕಲ್ಪಿಸಲಿಲ್ಲ. ರಾತ್ರಿ 2ಕ್ಕ ಬರುವ ರೈಲಿನ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಏಕೆ ಚಿಂತನೆ?
If BMTC, SWR and BIAL jointly work, they can introduce bus service from Yelahanka railway station at regular intervals. But BMTC will lose revenue of 250 rupees per passenger. So they will not do. SWR should run few passenger trains to YNK, which is totally not acceptable to them. BIAL is not bothered about how passenger reach or leave airport.
So common man like you and me have to suffer by paying ₹ 800
for travel from Bangalore airport to Mysore, whereas if trains are run from Yelahanka or Dodbele, would have costed less than ₹150.
So, travel via Bangalore airport is to get a hole in your pocket.

Yes actually after opening of Kannur international Airport passenger flow from Mysore to KIA has significantly decreased.Kannur is significantly nearer to Mysore and also road to Kannur has very less traffic compared to Bengaluru.
