Transport

Degana is a town populated around a railway junction 165 km west of Jaipur on Jaipur-Jodhpur Broad-gauge railway line of North-Westorn Railway. It has a good connectivity with Jaipur (165 km), Jodhpur(149 km), Delhi (473 km) and Bikaner (218 km) through the railway network. Its location is Latitude 26° 53' 45" N and Longitude 74° 19' 15" E.

A Railway Junction was made in the pre-independence era on the Jaipur-Jodhpur railway track solely for the reason of having a Railway-Node for better operational control as there was a stretch of more than 30 km without any station in-between. With the passage of time, a town came into being by drawing more & more habitation in last 50 years around the Railway Station owing to the better connectivity to more significant city centers like Jaipur, Jodhpur & Bikaner. The town now has headquarters for administrative units of the tehsil.

An old meter-gauge segment initiating from Degana Junction now has been converted to Broad-gauge and has elevated the importance of this Station. This segment runs through Deedwana and joins the Bikaner-Delhi line at Ratangarh. Direct trains are available on a daily basis to Jaipur, Jodhpur, Bikaner, Kota, Delhi, Lucknow, Kanpur, Varanasi, Puri and Kolkata.

Degana is also connected to nearby cities through the two State Highways and many MDR (Major District Roads) but sadly with almost negligible presence of State Transport services on this network. The town falls on midway on the State Highway from Ajmer to Nagaur SH-60 and another State Highway Ajmer to Deedwana SH-59. Private bus services links it to Ajmer, Nagaur,Deedwana, Merta and Makrana (via-Mithariya) but with unpleasant service and oligopolistic system of private bus operators running on approx hourly basis.
