How to reach Patna

One can reach Patna by roadways, railways and by air as the district is well connected through all the channels.
By Road
Patna is well served by a network of well maintained roads. National Highway No.31 passes through Dinapur, Patna and Patna City. While one branch goes to Barauni via Barh, another proceeds to Nawada via Bihar.
All the sub-divisional headquarters of the district (except the newly created subdivision of Masaurhi) are situated on this National Highway which provides the road link between North and South Bihar.
By Rail
The main line of the Eastern Railway passes through the entire length of the district running parallel to the Ganga. There are three railway lines running across the district from north to south viz., the Patna Gaya Branch line the Fatwah-Islampur Light Railway and the Bakhtiarpur-Rajgir Branch line.
Except the Light Railway, the other two are branches of the Eastern Railway. With the opening of the famous Patna-Hajipur Bridge (Mahatma Gandhi Setu), the ferry service connecting the capital with the North-Eastern Railway System has ceased to function.
By Air
Patna is connected by air to Calcutta and Delhi and a few other places by Daily flights. There is an aerodrome near Phulwarisharif and another at Bihta
