A guide for inter-terminal travel in Kolkata.
If you alighting at Howrah jn. , and wish to go sealdah station , then opt prepaid taxi. The taxi counter and fare is under complete control of Howrah Police and they will help you for alloting the taxi to safety. But i beware you , there are two prepaid counters and both are always in long queue. Instead you can pre-book your taxi by this Howrah police website- etaxi.howrahcitypolice.in/
would be much more beneficial and time saving. The fare from Howrah to Sealdah will be around Rs 100.
Lots of buses are also present from Howrah Bus depot which is at the starting point of howrah bridge. Ask anyone about sealdah bus and board it. Hardly takes 15 min (without traffic;may even take 1 hr with traffic) for this journey (The bus drivers in Kolkata are seriously very rash drivers). The buses will drop you on MG road near a flyover. Just walk few Metres below the flyover and you will reach Sealdah. If you have lots of baggage , then don't take bus. Conductors don't like passengers with lots of luggage.
There is NO direct railway connectivity for these Terminals.
