PASSENGER AND FREIGHT TRAFFIC

Bangladesh Railway is the principal mode of transportation in the country. With the development of road transport facilities there has been a shift in the trend of passenger traffic with short distance passengers preferring road transport, because of their frequent and point to point services. During 2011-2012, about 66 million passengers were transported by Bangladesh Railway against about 64 million during 2010-2011. In order to render better services to the passengers, Bangladesh Railway introduced Intercity Train services in 1985. At present there are 76 Nos of Intercity Trains running. Around 47.9 % of the total passengers of Bangladesh Railway are being carried by the Intercity trains which contribute approximately 84.5 % of the total earning of passenger traffic. Details are shown in Table No.24 & 25.
