The Sorry state of affairs at KNDV Station

Commuter Rail

I visited the Krishna Deva Raya Station in Vijayanagar on Sunday. What is striking here is the absolute lack of infrastructure! Some issues with this station are:

(1) Lack of platforms

(2) A poorly deisgned box, which serves as the ticket counter

(3) The endless construction of the railway underpass

The sorry state of Carmelaram Station

Commuter Rail

I want to share a horrible experience I had yesterday at Carmelaram station.  A family member was coming from Kerala on the 12678 Ernakulam-SBC Intercity express.  For me, the best option to pick up a traveler from the point of view of convenience is Carmelaram Station.  The other option is Catonment which is a nightmarish drive into the city and back away.

Bangalore Train Commute..

Commuter Rail

I was when going through Google Maps, just go this idea of using Existing Railway track around Bangalore and run local trains on it. This is very similar to how Chennai or Mumbai operates by making use of the same tracks on which inter city trains run. A small analysis i have done by referring Google Maps by identifying tracks that are already there (Only some stations can be built).

New Suburban Train Halt Stations - In PPP Model?

Commuter Rail

Railway’s inability to respond to emerging realities in meeting the suburban rail services have to be addressed. Bangalore City urgently needs multiple modes of mass transit system to address the demand for better public transport network catering to at least 60-70 % of its 10 Million populations.

The Wiki page on Bangalore has a transport section.  The transport section has details of only BMTC, Autos, Call Taxis and  Metro. It might be a good idea to include information about the DEMUs and MEMUs that run in Bangalore Metropolitan region. The routes, the timings and the stations. which it passes through could be included.
