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
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
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.
