Sixty-six special trains will connect Puri with different corners of Orissa on the occasion of the Rath Yatra this year. Special trains will run to and from Puri connecting Koraput, Rourkela, Baripada, Keonjhar, Brahmapur, Bhadrak, Angul, Dhenkanal, Paradeep, Bhubaneswar and Khurda Road.

ECoR has made special efforts to connect Koraput, Keonjhar, Baripada and Rourkela with Puri for Rath Yatra for the first time this year. Special trains will also run from Visakhapatnam and Palasa of Andhara Pradesh, Raipur of Chhattisgarh and Khargpur of West Bengal. The timetable of the special trains has already been prepared and the media is helping the masses know about them.

Special trains are being planned not only for Gundicha Yatra day but also for Sandhya Darshan, Sunabesha and Bahuda Days.

In order to have more trains available for such occasions, a number of empty coaches are being kept ready at Puri.
