5 reasons to get aboard the Rail Yatra on Aug 31st & say #ModaluTrainBeku!

1. Building the suburban train network is least disruptive on Bengaluru. It won’t affect the existing roads with diversions & bottlenecks while tracks are expanded, more trains run & stations fixed. Ride to demand the suburban train network!

2. It is most beneficial for Bengaluru. Like Chennai, upto 20 lakh people per day can commute if commissioned properly. Not 5-10 lakh like the Metro or a fraction of that by roads but upto 20 lakh daily! Banni! Jothege Hogona!

3. It is the lowest hanging mass transit for Bengaluru. Since ~180 kms of railway lines & >45 stations already exist, infrastructure does not need to be built afresh, only expanded. It can finish in 2-3 years! Train can be added incrementally & every couple of months 10s of thousands can switch to the train until it is fully enabled for upto 20 lakhs! Join the Yatra, ask for Rail!

4. Over 40 companies, civic groups, colleges, residents’ associations, commuters & wannabe commuters are demanding it! Don’t miss the train on Aug 31st!

5. The 4th pillar! The voice of the people! The press support #ModaluTrainBeku! You should too!

You can join at any station & take a ride, or just hang out!
You can join the onward!
You can join the return!
Just say #ModaluTrainBeku!
