Fleet Electric Buses Set to Transform Ayodhya for Ramotsav 2024

Ayodhya will introduce electric buses as part of its upcoming public transport system. Among 17 cities under municipal corporations, 14 already have this system in place, while Ayodhya, Saharanpur, and Firozabad are awaiting this service. Ayodhya will soon join the list as the 15th city, with plans to extend the service to Saharanpur and Firozabad in the following phase.

In anticipation of a surge in tourists and pilgrims visiting the Ram Temple, the Uttar Pradesh government has announced the introduction of electric buses along the Dharma Path and Ram Path in Ayodhya during the upcoming Ramotsav festival.

Starting January 15, around 100 electric buses will commence operations, aiming to enhance the commuting experience for visitors. Additionally, Ayodhya will see the deployment of golf carts and e-rickshaws to further improve local transportation.

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister's Office highlighted recent infrastructure developments, stating, "Corridors have been established, and both temporary and permanent parking spaces have been designated. Various parking facilities, spanning from the crucial Saket Petrol Pump to Lata Mangeshkar Chowk, are currently under development."

The consecration ceremony for the deity of Lord Ram is scheduled for January 22 in Ayodhya, coinciding with the 'Mrigashira Nakshatra.' The CMO announced plans for post-ceremony activities, emphasizing crowd management for darshan, worship, and travel, as well as the rapid establishment of temporary parking arrangements.

Notably, new areas for parking lots, covering a total of 70 acres (10 acres, 35 acres, and 25 acres), have been designated along the Chaudah Kosi and Panchkosi Parikrama routes at Udaya Chowk.

In a related development, approximately 100 Congress workers from Uttar Pradesh are expected to visit Ayodhya on Makar Sankranti.

Ayodhya, situated in Uttar Pradesh, boasts four main paths—Ram Path, Dharma Path, Bhakti Path, and Janmabhoomi Path--each representing the principles of the four Vedas and four eras.
Moreover, preparations for the consecration ceremony have gained international attention, as it is set to be live telecasted at New York's Times Square. Meanwhile, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is scheduled to visit Ayodhya today to convene with Ram temple trust officials and spiritual leaders, discussing the final arrangements for the grand ceremony on January 22.
