Vande Bharat Express ▸ Facts ▸ Comments ▸ News ▸ Videos
The Vande Bharat Express is a medium-distance train service operated by Indian Railways. Similar to Shatabdi Express, these are day train services that connect Indian cities which are less than 10 hours apart. The trainsets can support semi-high speeds but due to the railway track speed capacity, multiple stoppages and traffic congestion, the operating speed of the services are limited to 160 km/h (99 mph) on a section of the Delhi-Bhopal service and 110–130 km/h (68–81 mph) on other services.
