Vande Bharat To Connect IT Hubs Bengaluru, Hyderabad
Karnataka is likely to get its third Vande Bharat train, a high-speed semi-high speed train service operated by the Indian Railways.
The new train will run between Bengaluru’s Yesvantpur railway station and Hyderabad’s Kacheguda railway station, reducing travel time between the two IT hubs.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to flag off the train later this month. The train’s testing run has already started, and it will begin its commercial operations once the formal procedures are completed.
Vande Bharat trains are known for their modern amenities and safety features. They are designed for short-distance travel between important Indian cities that are less than a day’s journey apart.
The Vande Bharat trains offer a comfortable and rapid travel experience, and they incorporate advanced safety technologies like KAVACH.
The Vande Bharat trains are also environmentally friendly. They use cutting-edge regenerative braking technology and eliminate power cars, reducing their environmental impact and electricity consumption by about 30%.
Indian Railways has also announced that four more Vande Bharat Express trains will be launched this month, bringing the total number of semi-high speed trains to 29.
These new trains will operate on routes such as Patna-Howrah, Kacheguda-Yeshwantpur, Chennai-Vijayawada, and Chennai-Tirunelveli. The manufacturing of these trains has cost the railways ₹1,343.72 crore.
The Vande Bharat train between Bengaluru and Hyderabad will provide a convenient and efficient mode of transport for passengers between the two cities, particularly for those in the IT industry.
