“The UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) examination special express (train #07391) will depart from Hubballi at 5 p.m. on Saturday and arrive at Yesvantpur in Bengaluru at 6.45 a.m. on Sunday,” said the zonal railway official in a statement here.

On the return journey, the special train (#07392) will depart from Yesvantpur at 8 p.m. on Sunday and arrive in Hubballi at 8.45 a.m. on Monday.

“The train will have 17 coaches, including one AC 3-tier, 10-second class sleeper, four general coaches and two luggage-cum-brake vans,” added the official.

The special train is being run due to cancellation of regular services by the railways across the country since March 25 to contain the coronavirus spread and Covid-induced lockdown restrictions.
