More than six years after railway officials in Ballari division recommended the need for a Janshatabdi train between Hosapete and Bengaluru, commuters are yet to get a relief with most of them forced to go by bus by paying triple the fare charged by the railways.
There are two daily trains between Bengaluru and Hosapete, the tourist spot that attracts visitors from world over.
The three weekly trains are not of much use to the commuters as chances of getting a seat in long routes are slimmer.

Express (Train no 16591/2) and a passenger train (56909/56910) see a high ridership all the time with the waiting list crossing 40% of the total available seats in festive seasons and weekends.
"Passengers are forced to go by buses paying more fare because of not getting accommodation in the trains available at present. If one Janshatabdi train is introduced...that will be of more convenience to the passengers from Hampi and Bengaluru," the chief commercial inspector of South Western Railway had written to the Hubballi division in July 2011.
The letter also gives a breakdown of train and bus fares, with a breakdown for ordinary, express, sleeper and AC fares, showing that the bus fares are triple of what is charged by the railways.
The KSRTC and other state transport corporations run more than 35 buses between the two destinations with fares ranging from Rs 346 (ordinary) to Rs 680 (AC sleeper).
"We have a ridership that is above good all the time. Additional buses are deployed in festive season to accommodate more commuters," a KSRTC official said.
Private operators run about 60 buses, mostly sleepers, which charge less than the KSRTC during lean period and the fares crossing Rs 1,000 during festive season.
"We have been demanding an intercity train from 2010 and it was also voiced by the state government when (B S) Yeddyurappa was the chief minister. But, it has fallen on deaf ears," said Mahesh K, a member of Vijayanagar Railway Action Committee.
He said railway officials had said that running an intercity on Guntakal route requires cooperation from South Central Railway (SCR) and shunting yard at Hosapete station.
"If there is enough room to park the Golden Chariot train for 24 hours in Hosapete, why not shunt a train that helps thousands of people. An intercity will also benefit thousands of people from the border areas in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, which come under SCR. The officials should recognise this demand and propose a train in this budget," he said.

The railway station here is in elite company, having been selected among 24 in the country for setting up tourism helpdesks by the Railway Protection Force (RPF).
With World Heritage Site Hampi nearby, the station receives a large number of tourists from across the globe. Hosapete is the only station in the state selected for setting up the facility.

of the RPF are manning the helpdesk24x7.. The main objective of the helpdesk is to provide relevant information to the tourists besides providing first aid to the needy in the event of any accidents.
The personnel will also rush to the rescue of women passengers troubled by mischief mongers in trains. They will also help restore order in case of a fight between passengers.
The helpdesk has been set up on the right side as soon as one enters the station. Pictures of the monuments in Hampi, besides those of the Tungabhadra dam adorn the front of the helpdesk.
A railway official told DH that a decision on setting up helpdesks was taken at a meeting of the railways and the union tourism ministry.
He said the earlier helpdesk at the enquiry counter of the station was of no use to the tourists as there were no separate staffers there.
