Thanks for the information. This would have been more useful if the deboarding bus stop name would have been mentioned for all the Rly Stns. For example, the buses from SBC to Banaswadi railway station, the deboarding point is Maruti Seva Nagar bus stop, if I am right, as the station address is given as Maruti Seva Nagar, Banaswadi. However, if there is any other bus stops nearer to the Rly Stn., if mentioned would be helpful to those who travel by BMTC. Also, from SBC to YPR rly stn some buses like 90 series, it is the last stop, whereas for others, it is an intermediate stop (PF6.)

If you want to go to City Railway Station metro station from KSR Bengaluru Railway Station follow these steps:

⏺️Go straight untill unreserved ticket booking counter which is situated after platform no.9/10 exit - Picture 1

On this World Environmental Day, at SBC station of SRW, we are inaugurating new e- vehicle “Mahindra Treo” . It has much lesser turning radius and very convenient for carrying old passengers from one platform to other. DRM SBC ⁦@anandmahindra⁩

I have not been to SBC for a long time. SBC, I recall, is not a terminus. If this is correct, then how can this vehicle move from one platform to another?

This vehicle might take elderly passengers from entrance to respective lift/escalator. After reaching respective platform (by lift/escalator) another vehicle might take them to location where their respective coach will come. This is just my guess. Don't know what happens in reality

Makes sense, but that leads to another question - are there lifts/escalators available in EVERY platform?

Yes. This is a valid point. I observed recently that battery operated vehicle operated on platform no.9 and escalator is available at platform no.10. Platform no.9 & 10 together form an island platform. But I don't know whether there are lifts/escalators for all platforms at SBC. If all platforms doesn't have lifts/escalators then usage of these vehicles might be restricted to some platforms. Only local person can answer regarding this correctly

Retiring rooms at SBC are outsourced to some private company (can't recall the name) and are maintained average... (Over all citing exterior, room interiors of both AC and Non AC).
1. After you enter the station (dont enter the PF, PF 1 side) from taxi drop/pickup point, move right, beside milk parlor you will see stairs. Take that and go to the reception situated on 1st floor. (Do take a look at the wall paintings on the walls of station interior from here) Fill a form and mention transaction id, amount paid, phone no. and after entering details, manager will give you the keys.

A. Pic 1&3 are of Suit C which cost around 1000 (actual 998 after 5% discount on online booking) for 24 hrs. The room was well maintained. The beddings were clean with not the usual Railway blankets (2 fluffy soft blankets are provided). The toilets were OK with hot water tap which worked. The TV displayed all the major channels. So worth the price. From the corridor of Suit rooms and deluxe rooms, one gets a view of SBC station PFs.
B. Pic 2 &4 are of non AC room which cost 600 (570 on online booking). This room was somewhat not good. No TV (despite mentioned while booking), loose plastered walls which had fallen from here & there, some creaky furnitures. Toilets were same as of AC room/suit and were clean. The price was not at par for non ac room.
MY TAKE : If you wanna go for Suits, book it. Non Ac rooms are not worth the price. In that price one can get a better room in nearby hotels.
