Hi all,

I am currently in Auroville & wish to leave for Goa on Feb 18. I see a train from Pondi to Bangalore on 18th with availability in sleeper. I am hoping you might help with the Bangalore Goa leg of this trip. I cannot see any train options, if there are any can you let me know. I am also open to travelling by bus but first option is always the train.
Many thanks,
Janet

If you are leaving on the 18th (Wednesday) by the Chalukya Express, reaching Bangalore on the 19th, there is no direct train from Bangalore to Goa on the same day. It is possible to head from Bangalore to Goa changing trains at Hubli with the following schedule, though:

Train 1: Bangalore to Hubli: the Intercity Express (#12725), departing Bangalore City at 13:00, reaching Hubli at 21:15 OR the Sampark Kranti Express (#12629) departing Yesvantpur (North Bangalore) at 13:50, reaching Hubli at 21:40;

Train 2: Hubli to Vasco (Goa): the Link Express (#06948), departing Hubli at 23:00, reaching Vasco at 06:30 the next morning.

Keep in mind this is significantly slower than taking the bus: KSRTC operates a convenient Volvo service at 19:30, reaching Goa at 08:00 the next morning.

If you are open to spending a night in Bangalore, you could take the #17311 Vasco Express on the 20th. It departs Yesvantpur at 21:55, reaching Vasco at 13:00, and passes the scenic mountainous section near Goa during daylight. You will have to book through Tatkal though, as this train is currently waitlisted across all classes.

This train runs on Wednesdays only from KR Puram. Taking it will entail a six-day wait at Bangalore.

Another option would be to leave Pondicherry on Thursday, taking the Mangalore Express (#16855) to Kasargod. This train leaves Pondicherry at 16:35, reaching Kasargod at 08:19 and has availability across all classes. You can then take the Ernakulam-Pune Express to Goa (#22149, Kasargod 11:20, Madgaon Goa 17:10; 7 seats available in Sleeper)
