      Mahabodhi Express runs between New Delhi and Gaya. Since I am residing in Delhi and my home is in Gaya, I travel regularly by this train. This is the considered as the best train between these two stations.

      The time that this train took to complete its journey is sixteen hours. Seeing the standard of Indian railway this may be considered a good


      journey duration for a low cost super fast train.

      However, the actual facts told different stories. At least, I have never seen this train to complete its journey on time.

      What’s more generally the departure time got late by half an hour from both ends. Though train is considered as a superfast and has minimum possible stoppage, there is no facility of a ...


      • pantry car.

        This is really pathetic since in this condition people have to go for station eateries which is worse and unhygienic by every standard. Another point that needs to be mentioned is the cleanliness of the compartment.

        When train departs from a station, no care is being taken to keep the compartment clean. This is one of the worst things that I

        noticed on this train.

        The only positive with this train is its timing. It is designed to make passengers reach their destination early in the morning.

        Even if train is late, I reached home at appropriate time. Though this is not a good train by any standard, I still prefer it because it connects Gaya to the national capital and it makes it convenient to get tickets.

    from the New Delhi airport to the train, is there public transportation like bus ? if there is no bus, how can I call a trustable taxi ? how much to get there ? is it one time only for a day ? does the ticket sell on-line that we can buy in the USA ? how much ?

    There is a bus. Just get out to the Ajmeri Gate side and you will find bus that will take you to Mahipalpur which is near the Airport.

    However, you can always take a metro to the Airport which easier and far much convenient. It will take you to the airport in just 18 minutes while taxi or bus takes around one hour. The fare for metro is Rs. 80 per person.

    train has arrived today or or not?if yes then when?

    Please go through the official website of the Indian Railway for this information.

    Additionally, to know the status of any train, you can call 139. You are required to punch the train number and date of journey to get the information from 139. Remember, 139 is not a toll free number and hence Indian Railway will charge your for making the call.

    Hi Areej, it is really not possible for general public to get the name and contact details of the person sitting somewhere. I think you were traveling on that day and the person sitting beside you was a girl whom details you are asking for. This is really unethical and without any logic. No one can help you, not even Indian Railway as it provides details only on special circumstances and that’s too only to the Police department.

    Why the condition of Mahabodhi Express too horrible in Mamta Banarjee regime.

    Galega says :

    The condition is getting worse even in Pawan Bansal and CP Joshi Regime. It is not a neglect, per se. but, it is the rush that this train is getting which is responsible. I hardly find a day when this train is not booked completely.

    Galega says :

    There is no ‘official’ stoppage of Mahabodhi at Gaziabad station. when you are coming to Delhi, the train usually stops at Gaziabad because of signal problems. However, when you are going out of Delhi, you will rarely find it making a stoppage at Gaziabad.

    Mahabodhi express - why this train always late from gaya to delhi running. i came many time from gaya to delhi but it always late maximum 4 and 5 hour. it is not good.

    I have stopped traveling by Mahabodhi Express because of this reason. Once I used to always prefer this train for New Delhi. Currently, I prefer Patna - Mughalsarai route (trains are also late on this route, though).

    The main reason is highly congested tracks between Mughalsarai and Allahabad. The Railway Minister had recently said that he is working hard to work on this congestion problem. Hope he will succeed.

    Chandan says :

    HI,

    I agreed with you. Many railway minister came and went but problem is still pending with traveler. On the same rout purshotam express run for new delhi from puri which puri is very far from gaya station. this train does not late but mahabodhi express “O My God”. I is unfortunately mistake but anyone professional will known about this train never travel from this trail.

    There are small small cockroaches roaming around nearby the seat.. There’s a word called hygiene which lacks in Indian railways.. Specially such a bad condition in 2nd tier is highly unlikely.

    In India, sometimes you are required to compel people to do what they are paid for. It is negligence on the part of train supervisor and coach attendant. If you see cockroaches or any other filthy stuff, just call attendant. If not, use Twitter. Your complain will be instantly handled. That’s a big difference we are seeing these days with the Indian Railways.
