Trains are fully booked till mid-November

GOA: Non-Goan staff of beach shacks, water sports and other tourism-related businesses like restaurants and guest-houses are finding it difficult to reach Goa, said tourism stakeholders. “It’s a big problem,” hotelier and Calangute panchayat member Shawn Martins said. “Those staying in small towns and villages and are not able to get buses to reach the nearest railway station because the bus service has not started. There are also no trains in some parts,” he said.

“All the trains are fully booked till mid-November,” John Lobo, general secretary of the Shack Owners Welfare Society (SOWS), said. “There is only one train a day coming from states like Odisha, Bihar and the eastern states and they’re all running full. Those from Himachal Pradesh are unable to move because there are no buses to Delhi, from where they can get a train to Goa,” Lobo said.
