BENGALURU: One of the most jam-packed rail sections between Bengaluru and Chennai has become unpopular of late, thanks to the Covid pandemic. A Super Fast (SF) special launched between the two cities stands cancelled from November 21.
The KSR Bengaluru-Chennai Central-KSR SF train (Train nos 02027/02028) launched on October 23 on all days of the week, barring Tuesday, was to be operational until further notice from the Railways. It has now decided to stop it due to poor occupancy.
Divisional Railway Manager A K Verma told The New Indian Express, “We have been
Run Brindavan express to cover the distance in 6 hours. It will be a super hit.
During this pandemic, in many of the routes people are avoiding travel by AC and instead 2S and SL are running with good occupancy. Full AC trains in many routes are running with less people
Exactly. Brindavan express does not have AC coaches. 23/24 non AC coaches with 108 seats will bring big relief.
