BENGALURU (Metro Rail News): With the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) running six-coach trains on the Green Line from Nagasandra to Yelechenahalli on a daily basis, from Monday it has decided to introduce two more six-coach trains to the line.

“We have converted two more three-car train sets into six-car train sets on the Green Line and will be inducted into revenue service w.e.f December 23. There will be a total of 12 six-car trains, which will be operating on the Green Line between Nagasandra/Peenya Industry and Yelachenahalli stations. On weekdays, these trains will perform a total of 88 round trips.” “During peak hours, 66% of trains in operations will be six-car train sets and 33% of trains will be three-car trains. Otherwise, all six-car trainsets will be operational” said in a press release that was issued by BMRCL.

Lakshmi Balaji, a resident of Kanakpura Road said that Adding six-coach trains on Green Line has been demanded by the commuters and now they are happy with the addition. “It is a win situation for us. However, we need to check on the frequencies of the trains and overall we want 100% six-coach trains in this line”.
