Why the Jagannath Express Volvo Buses?

The Shree Jagannath Express bus service, operating under the Location Accessible Multi-modal Initiative (LAccMI), was initiated by the Odisha state government to ensure hassle-free transportation for individuals across the state to the divine town of Puri. 

The main objective is to facilitate a smooth 'Darshan' of the revered deities—Lord Balabhadra, Devi Subhadra, and Lord Jagannath—in the iconic 12th-century shrine in Puri.

Chief Minister Patnaik emphasizes the government's commitment to preserving and promoting Jagannath culture through various measures, including this express bus service. 

This initiative is a vital part of the state government’s strategy to accommodate around 10,000 individuals daily for a month, allowing them to explore the Rs 800-crore heritage corridor, Srimandir Parikrama Prakalpa, encircling the Jagannath Temple.
