This is good  answer to our SWR claims that Biyappanahalli to Bangalore city station is over crowded.   Truths about SWR claims is exposed. 

MoS should push for Commuter Rail which will benifit over all citizens.  One more pair of Train added to Commuter Rail list.

This new Traincould have been diverted upto Yesvantpur  instead of Bangalore Cant as METRO is going to serve the Biyappanahalli to Cant.   Already Cant to Biyappanhalli are well served by existing Passanger Trains. Their is no  passanger  Train between Yesvantpur to Biyappanhalli

 BMRC has to wake up to reality that Commuter Rail will take shape imay be in  different form. Commuters will have choice beteen BMTC, METRO & Commuter Rail soon.  Take case of Biyappanahalli  to Catonmnet, its served by SWR with  more then dozen trains,  commuters will keep using SWR and further additions like these small things will further patronize the Commuter Rail over long period.

Sanjeev said "as METRO is going to serve the Biyappanahalli to Cant".

There is no metro station neat Bangalore Cantt. On the contrary, metro would connect Yeshwantpur to Biyappanahalli eventually.
