First Vande Bharat Express started from here
The launch of the Vande Bharat Express between Bengaluru and Hubli-Dhaward has been underway for some time, but has been delayed due to the electrification of the downline between the two cities. The Hubli-Dharwad region is an educational hub with various institutions and the Vande Bharat Express is expected to ease connectivity to the capital city.
As per some reports, Indian Railways is also planning to start new Vande Bharat services between Bengaluru-Coimbatore and Bengaluru-Kacheguda (Hyderabad). In November last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched South India’s first Vande Bharat Express between Chennai-Mysore to Bengaluru.
