South Western Railway (SWR) has decided to cancel the services of Train Number 07339/07340 Hubballi KSR Bengaluru Hubballi Superfast Express indefinitely.
The dedicated Superfast train introduced a few months back had become a lifeline for the travellers between Hubballi and Bengaluru. Now people will be forced to book on the other trains.
The train used to receive an excellent response from the people. In the last 3 days, the Sleeper coaches have been fully booked, while AC 3-tier and AC 2-tier coaches are getting more than 90% patronage.
Also, the train reduced the load on Rani Chennamma Express and Belagavi Bengaluru Express. Now, getting confirmed tickets on these trains is going to be tougher than ever.
