Road trip from Lucknow to Allahabad can be divided into 2 parts. Part one journey between Lucknow and Raibareilly (80 km) is extremely good as the road has been widened and is a 4 lane highway. However journey between Raibareilly to Allahabad is really painful as the road is not wide and road is not in good condition.

Trains have facilities such as bathroom, big seat, speed and other's. I like train travel the most, due to heavy tour programme by office. So the train is very good for travelling. Train went through many cities and states, so the good journey also demanded a good train.
