Shatabdi Vs Vande Bharat: All you need to know about new Chennai-Bengaluru-Mysuru train


The semi-high-speed train Vande Bharat Express will start to run on the Mysuru-Bengaluru-Chennai route from November 11. The train that has a maximum speed of 160-180kmh will run at a speed of 75-77kmh on the route, a bit faster than the Shatabdi Express.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will flag off the train from Bengaluru. It will cut the journey time by a small margin. With restrictions on speed due to various reasons, south India’s first Vande Bharat Express will be the slowest in the country.

The train is expected to halt on platform no.7, facilitating easy access for passengers to the second entry of the KSR railway station in Bengaluru.
