Banaswadi cannot be terminus for trains from Ernakulam

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Trains between Ernakulam and Bangalore (22607, 22608, 12683, 12687) will terminate at Banaswadi starting January, 2018; see here. These trains arrive at 4 AM at Banaswadi and start at 6:50 PM from Banaswadi. 

What is wrong with this?

  • Banaswadi station has no metro connectivity 
  • Bus stop is 1.5KM away from the station 
  • The station is ill-equipped for women and children to wait till dawn 
  • Auto charges for south and western parts of the city will be more than the train fare between Ernakulam and Bangalore 

Overall, this change to Banaswadi does not help the commuters but puts them in utter misery. 

What needs to be done?

Cancel this anti-passenger change with immediate effect.
