Getting Around in West Bengal

Getting around in West Bengal is very convenient with the availability of several modes of transportation. The cities and towns are well-connected by roads and rail. Howrah and Sealdah Railway stations of West Bengal are the main junctions of the country; especially of the East.

There are regular bus services as well as local trains running everyday across the state. You can also hire cabs to travel across and can head to the various beaches by road, over the weekend. There are two major airports in West Bengal: Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport and Bagdogra Domestic Airport.

Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal has a great transport system. It includes underground and overhead lines of metro rail. Metro rail in West Bengal was the first of its kind to run in India. Tram services are still functional; but may be considered only if you have a lot of time in hand. The bus services are quite efficient within and across the towns, cities and rural areas.
