Prime Minister Narendra Modi will flag off the Vande Bharat Express train virtually. This train will run regularly between Dehradun and Delhi from May 28. Earlier on Tuesday, the trial run of this eight-coach train between Delhi and Dehradun was successful. The train will run six days a week at 7.00 am except Wednesday.

Railway Board Joint Director Vivek Kumar Sinha said that the train will have only five stoppages between Dehradun and Delhi. It includes Haridwar, Roorkee, Saharanpur, Muzaffarnagar and Meerut. The maximum speed of the train will be 110 kmph. With it, the average speed has been fixed at 63.41. The train fare will also be decided soon. It is being said that the fare may be 1.2 to 1.3 percent higher as compared to Shatabdi Express.

 

Vande Bharat will reach Delhi in less than an hour as compared to Shatabdi Express, the fastest train running from Dehradun. However, Shatabdi Express runs upto New Delhi Railway Station. While this train will only go to Anand Vihar. This train will take 4 hours 45 minutes to travel. Vande Bharat will leave Doon at 7 am and reach Anand Vihar railway station at 11.45 am.
