Expect the bullet train to cut down travel time and costs.

Come 2022, and you could travel by India’s first Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train, which is loaded with amenities, and allegedly, unlike any other train that runs in the nation currently.

Which is why, it isn’t a surprise that tickets will cost Rs 250 to Rs 3000, depending on the destination. The former price, you might pay travelling from Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) and Thane, and the latter you might pay if you travel all the way to Ahmedabad.

Achal Khare, Managing Director of the National High-Speed Rail Corporation Ltd (NHSRCL), claims fares that fares are based on projections and calculations.

He told the Economic Times that there would be one business class as well. The journey will be more affordable and take lesser time than a flight, if a trip to the airport, security checks, and boarding pass-procurement are considered, he added.

Currently, a taxi from BKC to Thane will set you back by Rs 650 and takes 90 minutes. This train will take 15 mins, costing you almost three times less.

Also, if you happen to travel to Ahmedabad, you will arrive at a station bedecked with Mahatma Gandhi’s iconic Dandi March theme, The terminating station of the proposed high-speed rail corridor will be constructed at the cost of Rs 250 crore, according to Mr Khare.

The station area will have a three-level parking that can accommodate around 1,500 vehicles. While the passengers from two metro stations and stations on the Indian Railway network can arrive at the Sabarmati passenger terminal hub, they can move to the Sabarmati Station via a foot-over-bridge connecting the two buildings, and board the bullet train from there.

Roof-top solar panels resembling a revolving charkha will be designed, and the terminal will be connected with a 400-metre foot-over-bridge with the platforms.

The construction work for this behemoth starts in December, later this year, and the deadline for the project is August 15, 2022.

The high-speed rail corridor is expected to improve connectivity, thanks to the bullet trains being used. This initiative is combining reasonable fares with short travel times, something that people will welcome.

The train itself, will have state of the art amenities, which you can read about in detail here.

You will watch the scenery fly by, as you travel at 320 kmph. The rakes will be like nothing like you’ve ever seen before while the seats will cradle you in comfort.
