At present people who are working in and around K.R. Puram, Whitefield, are travelling by Viswamanava Express reaching KSR, Bengaluru around 9.15 am and in turn catching Arkonam Passenger to reach their work places (to avoid heavy road traffic) around Hoodi Railway Station as late as 11.15 am many a time.
The newly-started Mysuru-Chennai Express is helpful to reach K.R.Puram where many Companies are located but the train starts from Mysuru at 4.45 am reaching KSR at 7.20 am leaving only after 40-45 minutes. If it starts between 5 am – 5.30 am from Mysuru, being a superfast train it can reach Bengaluru after 7.30 am and proceed for onward journey at 8 am to reach Whitefield, thus helping the employees to reach their work spots on time. I request SWR authorities to change the timings and help the commuters.
