Kannur: According to the railway timetable, at least 45 trains are scheduled from Kerala to Bengaluru. However, only two trains conduct services from Malabar region. One among them carries out service only once in a week. Currently, seven services to Bengaluru operate from Thiruvananthapuram while only two services from Ernakulam.

The request for a new train from Malabar to Bengaluru has to be addressed urgently, said the general secretary of Kerala Samajam in Bengaluru. This will aid the passengers travelling up to Palakkad. Though a huge flock of traders regularly travel from Bengaluru to Malabar, they have only Yesvantpur Express to rely upon.

“A train operating on day time between Bengaluru and Malabar is necessary for the passengers,” said the secretary of Bengaluru Malayali Welfare Association.

The passengers from Malabar currently depend upon the services from Mangaluru and Coimbatore to reach Bengaluru. Two services operate daily out of the seven services in Mangaluru-Bengaluru route. Apart from the four services commencing to Bengaluru from Coimbatore, at least 11 other services are passing to Bengaluru via Coimbatore.
