Now, Udyan Express from Mumbai to arrive two hours early in Bengaluru

In a relief to passengers coming to Bengaluru from Mumbai, Indian Railways have advanced the arrival time of 11301 Mumbai-Bengaluru Udyan Express in Bengaluru by two. According to the new schedule effective October 1, the Udayan Express will now reach KSR Bengaluru City at 6am in
stead of 7.50am. However, there is no change in the departure timing of the train. It leaves KSR Bengaluru at 8.40 pm and reaches Mumbai at 8.15pm the next day.

The Udyan Express is the only dedicated train between Bengaluru and Mumbai. According to the Railways official this reduction of travel time has happened as the Indian railways has increased the speed of some trains. Four pairs of mail/express trains have been converted into superfast ones from October 1. “We have speeded up 54 trains, including Udyan Express, with 1,453 minutes saved in the new timetable,” ToI quoted SWR chief public relations officer Aneesh Hegde as saying.

The train was introduced in 1983. This is the first time when the speed of the train has been increased after nearly four decades.

Several passengers welcomed the move but said that the travel time should also be reduced on the other direction. V wrote on Twitter: “Finally little relief, now the train reaches by 6am instead of 7.50am in Bengaluru, however Superfast/Duronto is required. Chennai and Hyderabad run many superfast trains to Mumbai, but Bengaluru runs express-cum-passenger trains to Mumbai due to heavy bus lobby (sic).”

“The running time of the train from KSR Bengaluru to Mumbai should be not more than 15 hours,” another passenger said.
