Indian Railways is set to launch its third Vande Bharat train, soon to operate between Mumbai and Ahmedabad. The new Vande Bharat train is designed to be more energy-efficient and comfortable than previous models, such as those running on the New Delhi-Varanasi and New Delhi-Katra routes, according to reports.

With its sleek blue and white colour scheme, the train will feature AC chair cars and executive chair cars. Safety and comfort are prioritised with the addition of four platform-side cameras, including rear-view cameras, and high-efficiency compressors with UV lamps for cleaner air. The advanced air-conditioning system will also include UV lamps for germ-free air.

The Coach Control Management System has been upgraded for better monitoring and feedback, ensuring smooth operations. Each coach is equipped with a 32-inch display for passenger information and improved flood-proofing capabilities.

Travel Time and Speed

The new Vande Bharat train will reach a speed of 160 kmph in just 140 seconds. This will reduce travel time by about 45 minutes compared to previous models, completing the journey in roughly 5 hours and 25 minutes, according to the report.

The stops along the route include Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Surat, Vapi, Borivali, and Mumbai Central. The new Vande Bharat train on this route is set for an official launch soon.
