The Mysore division of South Western Railway is offering more trains for Dasara. There will be four special trains shuttling between Mysore and Bangalore during Dasara to accommodate the additional traffic.

Starting September 28, additional counters will operate at the city railway station to attend to rush hour traffic. There is 15% rise in the fine amount too for passengers, who choose to travel without a ticket.

On an average, 25,000 passengers travel on Mysore-Bangalore sector. This shoots up to 50,000 during the festival.

“Special trains are to take the additional load,” said Mysore divisional senior commercial manager Anup Dayanand Sadhu on Thursday. The operation of these trains are scheduled ahead of Jumboo Savari on October 6.

The railway will suspend the issuing of platform tickets on October 6 and 7 going by past experience when the city station will be crowded.

The ticket issuing counters will be augmented taking their number to eight. In addition, two reservation counters will be opened. To cut down rush at the city station, an additional counter will be set up at Chamarajpuram railway station in the city, Nanjangud and Chamarajnagar.

There will also be a helpdesk and travel desk to assist the visitors.

Operations of the special daily trains will start on October 5 and will be on for five days. They are scheduled in the morning, evening and at night. The regular passenger trains that do not operate on Sundays will specially be on service on October 2 and 9. Mysore-Bangalore passenger train that departs at 10.45pm will be augmented with additional general second class.
