Bengaluru :, South Western Railways (SWR) announced adjustments to the schedule of the Vande Bharat train service between Bengaluru and Coimbatore from March 11. The Railway board has granted approval for these revised timings, urging regular commuters to take note.

Effective immediately, the Vande Bharat train departing from Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, will now leave at 7.25 am instead of the previous 5 am departure time, arriving at Bengaluru Cant station by 1.50 pm as opposed to 11.30 am. Conversely, from Bengaluru, the departure time will shift to 2.20 pm from 11.30 am, with arrival at Coimbatore now scheduled for 8.45 pm instead of 8 pm. These adjustments will also affect stoppage times at intermediate stations along the Bengaluru-Coimbatore route.

In December, Karnataka welcomed new additions to its Vande Bharat Express fleet following the virtual inauguration by Prime Minister Narendra Modi of six semi-high-speed trains nationwide. With these additions, Vande Bharat trains now operate between Bengaluru – Coimbatore and Mangaluru – Madgaon. Karnataka currently boasts five Vande Bharat trains servicing various destinations.

The Vande Bharat train between Bengaluru and Coimbatore serves as a crucial link for students and business travelers alike, given the bustling nature of both cities and their diverse purposes. Covering a distance of 380 kilometers in approximately six hours, the train makes stops at Hosur, Dharmapuri, Salem, Erode, and Tiruppur. Presently, Bengaluru hosts Vande Bharat trains connecting to Dharwad, Belagavi, Hubballi, Chennai, Mysuru, Hyderabad, and Coimbatore.
