Udaipur will now have direct train connectivity to Bikaner for the upcoming festive season. This new train will start on 2nd October and will be operational until 25th December 2019 to cater to festive traffic running between the cities.
The train will run from Udaipur to Bikaner via Churu, Jhunjhunu, and Sikar. This will be a relief to the passengers travelling between these cities on a frequent basis. For the devotees of the Karni Mata Temple of Bikaner, this train will make it convenient to visit the temple in the upcoming Navratri festival.
The train number 09677 will leave from Udaipur on every Wednesday at 6:45 pm and will reach Bikaner on Thursday morning at 9:25 am. The returning train number 09678 will leave from Bikaner at 1:25 pm on every Thursday and will reach Udaipur on the next day at 3:55 am.
The train will have a total of 18 coaches including one two-tier AC coach, two three-tier AC coaches, nine Sleeper coaches and four General coaches.
The Railway Department can change this special festive train to permanent train if it receives a good response during this duration.
