Shivamogga: The Shivamogga-Bengaluru Jan Shatabdi Express, which was launched earlier for six days a week (not operational on Tuesdays), will now be functional on all days of the week.

According to the press note released by parliamentarian B Y Raghavendra, “Not only will the train be functional throughout the week, but also reach earlier than usual. From Monday, October 14 onwards, the train will depart from Shivamogga at 5.30 AM and reach Bengaluru's Yeshawanthpur station at 9.50 AM, 20 minutes earlier than usual.
