Southern Railway (SR) is restarting services of short-distance unreserved (passenger and MEMU) trains in Kerala in a phased manner as part of the plan to restart all trains that were running pre-pandemic. Most of the long distance and intercity trains running through Kerala that were stopped due to the COVID19 pandemic are already running normally.
This page gives you the list and basic schedules of all short-distance day-time trains with unreserved seating currently running in the Trivandrum and Palakkad divisions of Southern Railway in the state of Kerala (and a small length in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka). The trains given in this list includes all day-time commuter express trains (like Venad, Parasuram, Executive, Intercity, etc.), all MEMU train services and all (former) Passenger trains that are currently running.
The list will be updated as and when more trains are announced to be restarted. Please note that all the trains in the list are being run as express trains and all train numbers differ from the earlier passenger train numbers. Note: All trains in this list have started running. The timetables were updated on July 29.
All these trains given in the list have all or majorly unreserved (general) coaches. You can board all these trains with a general (unreserved) ticket purchased from a railway station during the day time (for example, from Kottayam to Ernakulam or from Trivandrum to Kollam or from Ernakulam to Thrissur or Kozhikode to Kannur). Reservation is not required for these trains though some have it available. Reserved tickets can be purchased at IRCTC.
Note that these lists do not include long-distance trains that are running with predominantly sleeper accommodation and may or may not have unreserved coaches attached to them. These are only the list of trains that you can directly board with an unreserved (UR) ticket, including passenger, MEMU and commuter express trains.
Please also note:
- Many trains that were previously running as passenger services have been permanently converted to Express category.
- All restarted passenger and MEMU services are running as “Express specials” with Express train fare.
- Newly restarted passenger train number are different from the old numbers.
- Earlier “passenger” season tickets are still valid for use in these trains.
- Unreserved tickets can be bought from the counters at railway stations, ATVM machines or via the UTS mobile app.
- De-reserved sleeper coaches in long-distance express trains are not available yet.
- Unreserved Sleeper class tickets (SLUR) for day time travel in Sleeper coaches are not being issued until October.
- Stoppages differ for different trains. Click on the train number to view full timetable.
- MEMU trains will stop at all stations en-route.
