It departs from Marikuppam at 3.15 pm and reaches Bangarpet at 3.50 pm. From there, it reaches Baiyappanahalli at 5.10 pm. Officials from SWR said the extension would be operational only on weekdays. The changes have come into effect from November 21. Urban mobility expert Sanjeev Dyamannavar said the decision to extend the Kolar train upto Channapatna would help several passengers. He urged authorities to consider introducing a halt station at the trumpet flyover near the airport as a railway line already exists. With regard to Baiyappanahalli extension, he said there would be eight passenger trains halting at the newly developed Hoodi halt railway station. He also urged the railways to introduce a train connecting Whitefield, KR Puram, Channasandra, Yelahanka and Devanahalli bypassing Baiyappanahalli and City railway station.

The Nelamangala station is far from Nelamangala town, no crowd. But may increase when Hassan line opens. There is also some truck terminal built near station anticipating trains and goods loading facility for trains. But that too is empty awaiting completion of line. Just few laborers live in that terminal.
