People travelling between Bengaluru and Shivamogga can now enjoy the comfort of a Vistadome coach. The South Western Railway (SWR) has decided to augment one AC Vistadome coach to the Yeshwanthpur-Shivamogga Town Intercity express.
The coach will be augmented on a temporary basis from Saturday (December 25) to March 31, 2022. The ticket cost has been fixed at ₹1,130.
Chief PRO SWR Aneesh Hegde said the scenic beauty on the route near Kadur, Birur, and other places can be enjoyed while travelling in the new coach.
In July, the SWR launched Vistadome coach service between Bengaluru and Mangaluru. The official said that the service has been received well by the people with 90 to 100 % occupancy.
