Enhanced Connectivity with New Vande Bharat Express Train Service in Karnataka

According to our sources at The Reader Wall, South Western Railway has announced the introduction of a regular Vande Bharat Express train service. This advanced connection will serve between the cities of Bengaluru and Kalaburagi in the state of Karnataka. The initiative intends to boost accessibility and enhance travel comfort for the steady flow of commuters moving between these two locations.

Vande Bharat Express Inaugural Run

The inaugural run of this notable service is scheduled to commence on March 15, 2024, from the Sir M. Visvesvaraya Terminal (SMVT) in Bengaluru. The return journey will kick-start from Kalaburagi on the ensuing day, March 16, 2024. The Vande Bharat Express service, with the train numbered 22231/22232, will be operational six days a week, providing a reliable mode of transportation for regular commuters.

Weekly Off-Days and Route Details

Carefully considering the operational logistics and scheduling, the train service will stay off-track on Fridays for the Kalaburagi to Bengaluru route, and on Thursdays for return journeys. Travellers can enjoy brief halts at multiple waypoints like Raichur, Mantralaya Road, Guntakal, Anantapur, and Yelahanka on their journey on this semi-high-speed train.
