Journey by Train is one of the most convenient and cheapest transportation systems of Bangladesh. From the British Governing period Bangladesh Railway are providing an awesome transportation system in all over the Bangladesh except some district due to inconveniences of installing the rail line for unparallel road by Hill tracks or having some big rivers. Every year, Bangladesh government is taking proper steps to increase the route for Bangladesh Railway and thus the rate of passengers for Bangladeshi Rail is being increased day by day. The bus journey is painful and people usually get stuck in huge traffic jam and prefers railway journey.
But the sad part of Bangladesh Railway is the unavailability of Tickets. Railway Tickets seem too much hard to manage due to higher demand of it. And the huge spike of Railway Ticket needs is occurred during various Islamic Rituals and other festive occasions like Eid-Ul-Azha and Eid-Ul-Fitr. During EID almost 70 percent of people go back to their own village to enjoy EID with their parents and other family members. And at that time; a railway ticket is very hard to manage though one would have to stand for 6 or 7 long hours in the long queue.
Anyways, recently Bangladesh Railway launched an easier process to buy railway tickets online. Buying E-Tickets of BR is as easier as it should be. I personally thank to Bangladesh Government for taking such decision.
