Travel Question
Yesterday (21:11)   12325/Gurumukhi SF Express (PT) | HWH/Howrah Junction (23 PFs)

I have to travel by 12325 Kolkata Nangal Dam express next month. I would be reaching Howrah by Chennai Howrah mail and hence need to go to Kolkata to board the next train. I know taking a cab would be the easiest option. But, since I have sufficient time in hand and would also like to explore the city, can someone suggest me bus route from Howrah to Kolkata? From the maps I could understand that If one reaches Belgachia, then it would be easy to walk to the station. Please help me and suggest me bus routes from HWH to Kolkata.

Book a cab because the time you reach Howrah you won't get proper bus service. MAS Mail arrival is at 3:45am. You will get bus for Shyambazar around 5 am and you have to walk a bit from Shyambazar to KOAA station. Your train for KOAA is at 7:40 am. So don't take risk. Best option is to book a cab.

What are the options to travel from Renigunta station towards Tirupati railway station at around 3 to 4AM? I think Taxi or Jeep will charge too high considering the time.

Re# 4236943-5            Tags   Past Edits
Yes, mostly they will not allow. Best way for you is to try some connecting train. Next option would be APSRTC bus. Please use private taxi or jeep as last option because of high prices

Yeah, this is ridiculous. I remember something like this when I traveled few years back from RU, but at that time I went directly to Tirumala. The bus drivers are not good and they are rude to passengers if they say Tirupati. How pathetic the condition is in such pilgrim areas.
The many opt for jeeps as no other options.

I wonder why these stations cannot keep prepaid auto counters. This is big relief for us here in Kerala as all major stations have prepaid counter. RU is a big junction...

Okay, at least in TPTY, much helpful.
#moderator sir is there a possibility in information bar of a station to include if that station has service like prepaid auto/taxi etc? Each local member can add based on proof and personal experience. It will be great feature for all.
