Bangalore City Railway station

Last few days it was BUS and Traffic issues was an hot discussion among lot of Bangaloreans,So for a change lets divert and talk something about Trains/Railway station.

Few days back I had visited the Bangalore City Railway station & witnessed lot of improvements in the station and also on-going constructions works in various platforms, in the entrance they have made a good lobby, Improvements in platform 1 etc…. However few more platforms under-construction which will improve the things there too.
The best thing I found at first look at the entrance was a “Platform Ticket Vending Machine” where you put three 1 Rs coins to get one platform ticket, there is a machines which do accept the currency too, This has made the visitors in the station avoiding the long queue to get the platform ticket manually. This facility was introduced some where a year back.


Hope in later stage they will bring up such machines even to buy the regular train tickets too!!!

Today morning I saw an update in news papers regarding Bangalore City Railway station has introduced a passenger carrying electric car from the main lobby to various platforms, however the facility now available only from lobby to Platform 1 & later will extend to various platforms.

Who can avail this facility? Currently this facility is for Senior citizens, Patients, Phyically handicapped.

Let’s welcome more passenger friendly facilities in all our Railway station in the city!

    I wish they also started, giving carts for a price on platforms to carry your own luggage for people who want to, ( I am sure the coolie lobby wont allow this) … :)

    But this cart idea is excellent.

    The Railway station must have lifts to help cross railway lines as senior citizens find it hard to climb stairs. The proposed electric car is too costly and is not likely to be popular
