Mettupalayam, June 30, 2010 : The Southern Railway division has announced that the special additional passenger trains introduced has now been extended for a further 3 months and this is due to the excellent support received by commuters. This move has impacted on the bus collection and accident toll on this road, however if the number of trains is increased by another one to meet the need for the 7.30 am peak and 7-7.30 pm (Mettupalayam) peak from Coimbatore, this would greatly help the commuters. With the increase in diesel prices and the tamil nadu government not allowing any increases make the hole in the pocket for bus operators larger now. Lets watch this space. There are already 2 wheeler stands at Coimbatore doing very well with the introduction of this train.
