Thrissur Railway Passengers' Association, TRPA is the confluence of all the stake holders who are interested in the development of Railway facilities in and around Thrissur. Naturally, all the people who avail Railway facilities from Thrissur and other neighbouring stations are automatically the members of this association. Due to the historic reasons, commuters from Thrissur towards Ernakulam, Kozhikode and Palakkad sides form the active group. TRPA always stands for meeting the public demands and this process is well supported by Railway Men, Political Leaders and the Media in Thrissur. The tireless efforts by TRPA in achieving the long standing basic requirements of Thrissur are well recognised and appreciated by one and all. TRPA is committed to continue its service to the society at large, cutting across all divisions. "Our prime focus is on the sustainable improvement of rail service in the country to world class levels with special emphasis on Thrissur"

New train to B’lore to run as a special

Kochi: The Railways has adopted a new strategy to tide over the protests against inconvenient timings of the proposed additional train between Kochuveli and Bangalore by making it a special train. 
However, the new train, which will run for four days a week from Friday for a month, will leave Kochuveli at 9.20pm and will reach Bangalore at 12.45pm the next day. 

The Railways, in a press release, said the new train would leave Kochuveli on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. 
 In its return trips, the train will leave Bangalore at 2.15pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. 
Earlier, there were widespread protests against the timetable of the new train from passengers who wanted it to reach Bangalore in the morning hours and to leave Bangalore in the night.
