Transportation in JamuiA very good highlight of Jamui are
the roads. It is very-well connected to the rest of the country. The
roads once entering Bihar could be a little troublesome if you’ve taken
the Jharkhand route, otherwise the roads are pretty good. The Mughal
Sarai-Patna route is a good option when coming from the major
metropolitan cities. The Mallepur Railway station (Jamui’s railway
station) has the Delhi-Howraw railine running on its platform which
makes it easy otherwise. There are the Jaya Prakash Narayan
International Airport and also Gaya International Airport to the rescue
too but they’re nearer to Patna and a little away from this district.
