This is a proposed route for many years. Just like Lonavla many people travel from Daund to Pune City for work. This route was proposed for the convenience of people of Daund and the villages on this route. However many years have passed since this proposal but this service does not operate even today. Instead of suburban trains four shuttle trains operate on this route between Pune and Daund and through trains like Pune-Baramati shuttle, Pune-Manmad passenger, Pune-Nizamabad passenger and two shuttle trains between Pune to Solapur are useful for people on this route to access Pune City.

Proposed Plans[edit]

The citizens are demanding Pune - Daund Suburban Service for many years. According to the proposals for 2010-11 Budget were as follows:

New EMU Terminal[edit]

The new EMU terminal will be situated on west of the existing station. It will have two lines and one platform. This Proposal includes:[10]

  • Extension of existing platforms to accommodate 24 bogie trains.
  • A new terminal for EMU to accommodate 15 bogie trains.
  • Three foot over-bridge to connect new terminal to other platforms.
  • Expansion of Hadapsar for new trains to origin and terminate at the station.
