How much will you pay to travel by Train18?

February 12, 2019 20:54 IST

The semi-high speed train is scheduled to be flagged off by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on February 15.

Rationalising the fares of Vande Bharat Express or Train 18, the Railways on Tuesday said an air-conditioned chair car ticket for a Delhi-Varanasi trip would cost Rs 1,760, instead of Rs 1,850, and the executive class fare will be Rs 3,310, instead of RS 3,520.

 

On the return journey, the chair car ticket would cost Rs 1,700 and the executive car ticket will be priced at Rs 3,260, a railway order said.

Both the fares are inclusive of the catering charges.

Now, the chair car fares are 1.4 times the base price of Shatabdi trains running the same distance and the executive class fares are 1.3 times of first class air-conditioned seating in the premium train, it said.

The semi-high speed train is scheduled to be flagged off by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on February 15.

The train has two classes of tickets -- executive class and chair car -- and will have differently priced meals.
