Chennai Shatabdi Express connects Bangalore with Chennai. The former is the capital of Karnataka and the latter is the capital of Tamil Nadu. The distance is small enough for a Shatabdi Express to run on regular basis. That is the reason why this train runs on all days except Tuesdays. One feature of this train is that it has more stops as compared to Mysore Shatabdi Express which connects Mysore to Chennai via Bangalore.
