The largest and the main Bus stand for Bhubaneswar is located at Baramunda, and in common language called Baramunda Bus stand. It is located nearly 10kms away from the Railway Station. Another small bus stand is at Master Canteen (Bhubaneswar Railway station Pf 1 side).
If you are alighting at Bhubaneswar station, and wish to go to Puri, then go to the Bus stand towards Pf 1 on the railway station, and you can get Govt AC Low floor "Mo Bus", but they are non-frequent. Instead, you can come outside from Platform 6 side, and walk to the Cuttack-Puri Road which is roughly 200m away from the station, From there every 15 min at day time and every 20min in the evening
...
more...
time you can get buses to Nimapara, Kakatpur, Puri and Konark. But the last bus passes at about 9:45 pm-10 pm.
If you wish to go towards North Odisha (Jajpur-Bhadrak-Balasore-Baripada), Western and Central Odisha (Sambalpur-Rourkela-Keonjhar-Barbil-Jharsuguda-Balangir-Dhenkanal-Anugul-Talcher), then reach the Vani Vihar square which is nearly 4kms away from the railway station. You can easily get shared autos from the station. From Vanivihar square, regular Balasore/Baripada AC buses can be caught every 20min gap starting morning 5 am till night at 10:30 pm. The same case is also for Western and Central Odisha but the last buses to all routes are at about 10:30-11 pm only. After that, you won't get any buses. Also do keep in mind that, from 6 pm to 8:30 pm in the evening, No buses run for Balasore/Baripada. But always keep an open eye that many times I have seen due to Festive seasons or any other occasions, Police blocks the Vani Vihar square, thus the buses instead of coming below to the square, go via the above Flyover and halts on the highway where the service roads meet the Highway which is roughly a 200m walk from the Vani Vihar junction.
If you wish to go to Southern Odisha (Berhampur-Visakhapatnam-Ganjam-Koraput), then you will have to reach the Baramunda bus stand to catch your bus. Ample amount of Govt and Private buses run between state capital Bhubaneswar and Silk city Berhampur.

Mo Bus tip and Ola/Uber Tip:
Generally, the Bhubaneswar railway station in the common tongue called "Master canteen". So, next time If an auto wala says you "Master Canteen", then don't get confused.
The main Master Canteen bus stand is just beside the Railway station. I have attached the screenshot to reach there. It's just a 50m walk from the Railway station premises. In the attached screenshot, the star mark is the Bus stand and I have marked the route with a black marker. If you are coming to Bhubaneswar and you

have a smartphone, then kindly install the "mo bus" app which will really help you in finding and boarding your correct number bus.
At Bhubaneswar station, the Pickup and drop point for Ola/Uber cabs is a different location due to Auto wala politics. The Drop point is near to the Station entry Gate marked in the Black triangle in the attached screenshot, whereas the Ola/Uber Pick up point is at around 100m away from the station near the Tanishq Showroom which is marked in red triangle.

It's just Like Paharganj and Ajmeri Gate names are for New Delhi Railway station. Similarly, the Master canteen area is the Platform 1 exit side and Cuttack-Puri road area is the Platform 6 side. Earlier only the Platform 1 side was developed but recently to reduce traffic on the Master Canteen side, EcoR has totally revamped and developed Platform 6 side also.
And the Master Canteen Square (Chhak) is the big circle you can see in the image near the Nehru park and Jay Prakash Narayan Park.
Master Canteen is not

a canteen/restaurant. It's just a big Traffic circle.
The distance between the black and red square is nearly 100-150m only.

Following is the Auto transportation ideas in Bhubaneswar:
If you are going towards Lewis road/sishupalgarh/lingipur/Kalpana chhak/Laxmi Sagar/Bomikhal/Rasulgarh:
Come outside from Platform 6, turn right away from the High India tri-color flag and exit the station. You will have to walk nearly 200m here and you will reach the Cuttack-Puri State Highway. If you have normal luggage like 1-2 bags, then you can easily come down to this road and save a huge amount of money.
From
...
more...
here left side of the road you will get numerous sharing Autos towards Laxmisagar, Bomikhal, Esplanade Mall, and till Rasulgarh. The fare was Rs 10 per person. Whereas if you book an auto, then it may cost nearly Rs 150-Rs 200. Till last year, the fare of sharing Auto on this Cuttack Puri road was standard Rs. 10 only. Whatever distance you wish to go, the minimum fare and maximum fare is Rs 10 only.
And for going towards Kalpana Chhak, Lewis Road, Sishupalgarh, Lingipur, you have to cross the road and take autos from the opposite side.
Just be careful while crossing this every busy road as no traffic police are seen here at this big junction. Forgoing to Lewis Road, Sishupalgarh, Lingipur side, you have to change over Auto from Kalpana Chhak.
I have thus attached a screenshot. The walking path is been marked with black line and the point from where you will get share autos is marked as Red Arrow.

The food plaza at BBS provides a superb quality of multi cuisine delicacies for a decent price. I was with my friend, and had 2 pieces of Laccha Paratha's each, for 72 rupees and Kadhai Paneer. The total bill inclusive of all taxes was around 180 rupees. Hence, it is a very good food deal to buy and eat at this Food plaza of BBS station.

Booking Preference Tip.
If you have to travel from Delhi to Coastal Odisha , then your train availability searching priority should as: (For SL class)
1. Purushottam express (No doubt about this train;Book this as your 1st preference)
2. BBS Duronto express (only for Bhubaneswar and Balasore people ; Punctuality is poor; But safest and secure as no unreserved or daily travellers are allowed
...
more...
to board)
3. Odisha Sampark Kranti express (Puctuality is poor but its better bcoz NO unreserved or WL crowd boards this train due to Least halts in UP)
4. Nandan Kanan express (Better than neelanchal bcoz takes shorter route; punctuality is poor but seat availibility is better than Neelanchal)
5. Neelanchal Express (You will hardly get CNF seat in this train; Very demanded train as its the only train connecting Central UP with Odisha & puri)
6. Hirakund Express (Takes the shortest route; Good punctuality; but problem is its speed and total time taken; Huge number of halts and unreserved & Daily travellers board this in SL class)
7 ANVT BBS weekly express (Train best suited for Western Odisha; takes 2nd longest route and punctuality is poor ;Not much beneficial for coastal odisha)
8. Kalinga Utkal express (This should be the least preferred for travelling to coastal odisha; Very slow and heavy crowded throughout the route with Unreserved , WL and Daily travellers;Maintenance is below average;Takes the Longest route so that whole northern coastline of odisha is covered but still takes hell lot of time;Don't take SL class in this train unless have NO other option)
Now For AC classes,
Only opt Rajdhani or Purushottam. Getting seat in BBS rajdhani is easier and journey would be punctual.

Punctuality very good ??? Kya bol dia aapne sir...Its Excellent. Balasore pe Utkal aur Purushottam do train aati hain at midnight from Delhi, but Puru majority 1-1.30hr delay rehti hai but Utkal humesha ontime.
But kharabi yeh hai ki Koi leta hi nahi hai from Delhi to Coastal odisha. Itna circular journey kaun kare. ;)
Western odisha jyada prefer karte hain Utkal.

But this old horse Utkal always stay on time whatever be the season. Best preferred by Wetern odisha only.

Yes...the pantry standard is average below standard.....Instead good pantry is present in Odisha sampark kranti which serves good quality food as per my last journey experience.
But then we have to compromise on Punctuality factor if we check on pantry quality.

delhi to Odisha travelling people don't like Utkal exp but the people of MP , specially from jabalpur side (Boarding from Katni) and going to Balasore-Bhadrak, people still prefer Kalinga Utkal due to its punctual and direct route.
End to End people don't prefer but Intermediate travellers prefer it very much due to its good seat availability.

The reason is absolute stoppage of starting any new train for odisha.
The last train that was started for odisha to north india was ANVT BBS Weekly SF which was for Western Odisha on the same departure slot as of Odisha Sampark kranti.
After that till now there is NO trains started. All the RM have completely ignored to connect Puri , a one of the Biggest tourist destination with Jammu-Katra or Haridwar or Amritsar North Indian cities.

Problem with Hirakund is Huge Number of Halts and very slow TT with Heavy inflow of MST/UR travellers between Delhi-Bina.
Whereas in nandan Kanan , the rush is bit less as compared to Hirakund....If ECoR somehow Speed up Hirakund express (which is easily possible) , then i would say it can climb up to atleast Rank 2.

Problem is that a train with as much halts as Hirakud will need little more slack...
I wont deny that its not feasible...
Ofcourse its feasible, at the same time too much halts should be removed.

And instead of Sambalpur bypass, i would say EcoR should electrify the SBP-JSG stretch and then Loco change over can be doe at SBP itself with reversal also just like its happening at present at JSG. And due to which, it can bypass JSG station.
It will be more easier for the ECoR train to bypass SER satellite station instead of bypassing a ECoR Division Junction.

for an ecor train to bypass ser junction administrative permission of ser zone is required. but it is administratively easier for ecor to bypass their own junction.

SBP is divisional HQ. And bypassing a Divisional HQ by the home zone well demanded train is nearly impossible.
Labor unions and People of Sambalpur won't accept this kind of bypass.
JSG is very small as compared to SBP and bypassing it wont serve much of loss to Railways in comparison to Sambalpur.

The train will still serve the city albeit it will stop at sambalpur city halt.there are many examples in the past that it has been done. The sole garib rath train in secr bypasses zonal hq bilaspur and goes through usalapur to avoid lr.abkp durg exp was also diverted earlier. Well am not personally advocating any thing, just citing examples from.past. and it all depends upon ecor that how fast it completes electrification process.
Bypassed or not this still a very good train averaging 54 km speed despite so many halts. (except the avg cleanliness) and personally prefer it while going to delhi from bsp

This aggressive schedule specially between SBP-BSP makes it sometimes delayed while arriving BSP (45min to 1hr delay).
If JSG bypassing is done, then i think some slack can be provided.
ECoR won't bypass this train from SBP.
As already can be seen , to cover more of its zonal territory, ECoR extended it to VSKP in all covering ALL divisional HQ of

ECoR i.e KUR , WAT , SBP, thus making it a time wastage for VSKP area people.

Totally agree to the point.
ECoR is giving ELoco for mere Puri to Talcher journey for Puri Durg Express, but this train is running with Diesel Loco all the way from VSKP to Talcher Fully electrified stretch.

Hai toh...Then ?
See, No new trains are starting from ECoR. Only the trains towards south are running. Demands are many, but Odisha is not getting anything as of now.
ECoR can't start any new trains on its own. RB need to approve and sanction first. And at present we all know which regions/cities are getting new trains as of now.
Puri is

a terminal stations and it has only one train as of now to UP (Neelachal express).
Sambalpur division has got its own (Pitiable Pathetic) train for Varanasi.
WAT division needs a dedicated train VSKP-GKP via SBP-RNC-GAYA.
Mai toh Odisha CM Naveen Pattnaik ji se agree karunga. Unka demand tha VSKP to give to SCR and Hijlli to Ranital SER Stretch to ECoR thus having full Odisha state. One State One Zone.

Yes i too agree.... That has to done. But E.Co.Rly doesnt like to loose VSKP which is highest earning Divison. my question is simple. When there are 4 trains to Gaya in which one can be extended as it is starting from BBS (Puri trains i dot like to extend as it is a Big Pilgrim point and not possible also) why dont they do that? RB never object to extension.

Odisha Sampark kranti can never be extended to VSKP. Its for Odisha state, not for Andhra.
Berhampur extension can be possible but for that Pitlines and infrastructure from Zero level to be developed at BAM.
Forget the BBS Rajdhanis.
Only train remains is BBS ANVT Weekly express which is having RSA with BBSR ANVT Duronto express. For extension to VSKP, atleast 20-22hours (8+8hrs

journey up down and 4-5hrs Maintenance time) extra time is needed for this train which is not possible.
So only possibility remains is a New train.

i am saying this train because this is SF and extension i am asking this is only extendable train to go ALD/BSB/MGs for Direct pax to ANVT this is useless but for ALD/MGS/BSB this is good option. My request for extension is for ALD/MGS/BSB purpose not for NDLS.

Yes they are excellent but the Rajdhanis don't have SL class. They only have AC classes and my this tip is for booking in SL classes.

As these all trains go through dense Fog regions in Winters every year, so i think one more strong reason is there which supports the Purushottam Express to be the Top most priority.
Unless the incoming trains are running 20-24+hrs delayed, be assured that your Purusottam express gonna depart exactly On time from its source.
Its because this Purushottam express train have ample Turn around time at both ends i.e New Delhi and Puri. So 10-15hrs delays doesn't hampers the departures from Sources station unlike other trains like Odisha Sampark kranti and Nandankanan/Neelachal
