The Railway Board is set to start operations of the Vande Bharat Express train from Muzaffarpur and Jaynagar stations after June 15.

An official notification regarding the commencement is expected to be released soon. Efforts are underway to increase the track speed to 130 km/h, and the repairs required for this will likely be completed by the end of May.

Upcoming Train Services:

  • Besides the Vande Bharat Express, the region will also witness operations of the Amrit Bharat Express and Vande Bharat (sleeper version) trains.


  • Planned routes include Muzaffarpur to Delhi, Jaynagar to Delhi via Muzaffarpur, Saharsa to Howrah (Vande Bharat), and Patna to New Delhi (Vande Bharat sleeper version).


  • Additionally, one Amrit Bharat train will operate from Darbhanga to Delhi and another from Raxaul to Delhi.
  • Currently, an Amrit Bharat train is already in operation from Delhi to Darbhanga via Sitamarhi.
