To make commuting easy for air passengers, Indian Railways has introduced five special trains from Bengaluru which will take the passengers to Kempegowda International Airport in THIS price. 
Bengaluru traffic and soaring cab prices have been a matter of concern for a long time now. Air passengers tend to face a tough time in long traffic jams and even get late for their flights. In order to make commuting easy and feasible for commuters, Indian Railways’ South Western Railway introduced five new pairs of Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) trains from Bengaluru.

will take the passengers to Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) at Rs 30 to Rs 35 per head. The train services commenced on July 29. Indian Railways took this initiative to provide additional connectivity to the airport.

“Passengers kindly note: In order to provide additional connectivity to Kempegowda International Airport, #Bengaluru additional MEMU U/R Express Special services are introduced as detailed below,” read the tweet of South Western Railway. 
Five MEMU trains to the airport are as follows: 
06531/32 KSR Bengaluru City-Devanahalli-KSR Bengaluru
06533/34 Devananhalli-Yelahanka-Devanahalli 
06535/36 Devanahalli-Cantonment-Devanahalli
06537/38 Devanahalli-Cantonment-Devanahalli 
06539/40 Devanahalli-Yelahanka-Devanahalli
The above-mentioned trains will run six days a week with no services on Sunday. The trains will halt at stations around 3.5 kilometers away from KIA. Bengaluru International Airport Limited (BIAL) provides a free shuttle service between the halt station to the KIA airport terminal. 
With this option, passengers can save a lot of money on travelling as cabs would cost from Rs 200-Rs 600 and every more depending upon the traffic. Here the passengers will only have to spend Rs 30- Rs 35 per head. MEMU trains are used to cover short and medium distances across India. The electrification for this section was commissioned four months ago and is being used for the first time to run MEMU trains to Bengaluru airport.

In a major relief for frequent flyers in Bengaluru, the commute between the city and the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) has been made easier and significantly economical by the introduction of five new MEMU (Mainline Electric Multiple Unit) trains by the South Western Railway (SWR), which will be operational starting Friday, i.e. July 29.
MEMU trains are electric multiple unit trains that serve short and medium-distance routes across India. The SWR announced the details of the new trains on Twitter, writing, “In order to provide additional connectivity to

This will be a significantly cheaper commute option for passengers as the Bengaluru airport express train fare is set at Rs. 30 - Rs. 35 per head. This compares to BMTC Vayu Vajra’s average fare of around Rs. 230 and cab fares through ride-hailing apps that can reach up to Rs. 600 and more.
Operational difficulties had kept the SWR from making use of the Yelahanka-Devanahalli-Chikkaballapur line sooner. This section's electrification was commissioned nearly four months ago, and is being used for the first time to run services to KIA today.
The five trains are:
06531/06532 KSR Bengaluru City-Devanahalli-KSR Bengaluru
06533/06534 Devanahalli-Yelahanka-Devanahalli,
06535/06536 Devanahalli-Cantonment-Devanahalli,
06537/06538 Devanahalli-Cantonment -Devanahalli and
06539/06540 Devanahalli-Yelahanka-Devanahalli.
These trains are set to run for six days a week, with no services on Sundays. All of them will stop at the halt station which is around 3.5 kilometres away from KIA. This halt station was built by the Bengaluru International Airport Limited (BIAL), the operator of the Bengaluru airport to make commute easier for both airport employees and passengers. The BIAL also runs a free shuttle service between the halt station and the airport terminal.
This is the second time the SWR has introduced trains to the KIA. It's first attempt of launching five pairs of DEMU - Diesel Electric Multiple Unit - trains to the airport in 2021 was stopped after it received less-than-anticipated takers.

Railway lines are an integral part of east Bengaluru as the Bengaluru-Jolarpettai-Chennai railway track cuts across many localities. Now, the railways are planning to lease out the railway property to boost the realty sector. Many say that railways should also take measures to improve the facilities at the Bengaluru East railway station as well, a move that could significantly improve the area’s economy. Now, the Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA), a statutory authority of Indian Railways has invited bids for leasing out an 8.61 acres land parcel at Cantonment Railway Colony, for commercial development. The reserve price of the land is Rs 236 crore for a lease period of 60 years. The proposed land parcel is strategically located between Cantonment Road and Thimmaiah Road. The current land use for these land parcels is residential (main), commercial (business) respectively as per the permitted usages defined by the Master Plan 2015. The site...

is approachable by Miller’s Road and Cantonment Road from the north and Thimmaiah Road from the west. The site is flanked by Karnataka State Financial Corporation Building to the south and Cantonment Road to the East. Ved Parkash Dudeja, Vice Chairman, RLDA said, “The land parcel is ideal for residential/ Commercial development and is in the heart of the city. Its development shall boost the already developed economy of Bengaluru and will provide well-developed residential apartments/ commercial complexes to Bengaluru.” The online pre-bid meeting was conducted a month ago and prominent local and national level developers attended the meeting and their queries were answered. The last date for submission of e-bids is August 1. A railway colony redevelopment work shall also be entrusted to the developer, for which a separate land parcel measuring 1.0 acre shall be available. The ever-increasing millennial workforce of Bangalore has significantly influenced the city’s real estate market. While the IT/ITeS professionals working in reputed multinationals and scouting for globally inspired lifestyles have driven the residential market in the city, the commercial real estate has been steered by budding entrepreneurs, said sources from RLDA.

Re# 5413710-1              
SWR should think of running a train from SBC (PF 1-7) to Tumkur line (say Hubli/ DVG/ HPT etc) via Cantonment, East, SMVB. Distance is be more by 20 kms, but think of connectivity from East Bangalore towards central Karnataka.
This route will reduce rush at SBC/ YPR also, as public can board from BNC or East or SMVB.
