More than 96% seats booked on Mumbai-Gandhinagar Vande Bharat Maiden commercial run: Western Railway

A Western Railway (WR) official said that more than 96 per cent seats of Vande Bharat Express were booked during its maiden commercial run between Mumbai and Gandhinagar stations on Saturday. The train was flagged off by Prime Minister Narendra Modi from Gandhinagar on Friday morning. He also traveled on it from Gandhinagar to Kalupur station in Ahmedabad. The booking of the new train started on Thursday itself.

Western Railway’s Chief Public Relations Officer (PRO) Sumit Thakur said that out of the total 1,123 seats in the Vande Bharat train, 1,086 seats were booked between Mumbai and Gandhinagar stations, which means 96.70 per cent seats were booked. He said that all the seats in the executive chair car and 96.37 per cent seats in the chair car of the train were booked during the first ride between Mumbai and Gandhinagar.

The Vande Bharat train has 1,123 seats, which includes 104 seats in the executive chair car and 1,019 seats in the chair car. Of these seats, all 104 seats in the executive chair car and 982 in the chair car were booked. This train will run six days a week except Sundays.

During the first run of the train between Ahmedabad and Mumbai stations on Friday, 313 passengers, excluding media persons, traveled on it. The train, which connects the capital cities of Maharashtra and Gujarat, is the third Vande Bharat Express. The first such train was introduced on the New Delhi-Varanasi route, while the second was introduced on the New Delhi-Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Katra route.

According to Thakur, for Gandhinagar-Mumbai Central journey, passengers will have to pay Rs 1,275 for chair car ticket and Rs 2,455 for executive chair car ticket. The chair car ticket for Mumbai Central-Gandhinagar journey will cost Rs 1,440 and executive chair car ticket will cost Rs 2,650. An official said the difference in fares for the two trips was on account of catering charges.
