Ramanagaram – SBC Bengaluru train service to be EXTENDED to WHITEFIELD station on the SBC - Bangarpet line.

About 3 lakh people commute on this route daily. Residents of Bengaluru (especially whitefield) are facing immense hardships to commute on a daily basis. The traffic situation is getting worse day by day. People spend about 2-3 hrs every day, just to commute to their workplace, school/college, business and factories.                

Without a regular mass transit system, Bengaluru City is at a very disadvantaged position, compared to other cities like Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad etc. The Government of Karnataka has placed a proposal before the Railway Board for the introduction of a ‘Suburban Rail Service’ in Bengaluru. We do hope that this will be given a priority in coming days. We understand that these projects take time. 

In the meantime, some immediate relief can be provided by the South Western Railways by running some skeletal services to some of the most congested parts of Bengaluru City. Ramangaram to Bengaluru City and Bengaluru City to Whitefield are the 2 top corridors that urgently require help with additional modes of daily travel. 

It is reported that SWR is soon introducing a train service from Ramanagaram to SBC Bengaluru. We would like to request that this service instead of ending its journey at SBC, be extended to WHITEFIELD on the SBC-Bangarpet route. Fortunately the section from Ramangaram to SBC and SBC to Whitefield is both a double line and electrified.

We hereby request that SWR run daily train services from Ramanagaram to Whitefield during morning hours (7 am to 10 am) and evening Hours (6 pm to 9 pm) in BOTH directions.

It is know that suburban railways are cheaper than other choices as shown in this article:
