A guide for inter-terminal travel in Kolkata.
Kolkata chitpur is bit more inside the city and away from main lines. For here also you can take same pre-paid taxi. Or else you can even take Kolkata circular railway emu for Kolkata chitpur. The nearest station from HWH to board Circular railway is Barrabazar and Princepghat.
Barrabazar is just on
the other side of Howrah Bridge. Where as Princepghat is across hoogly on the strand road somewhat near to Babooghat. You can take ferry service to cross the hoogly. Yes its bit sightseeing kind of but a real heaven for railfans. The Kolkata circular railway frequency is very less throughout the day (hardly 12-13 trains a day), so plan accordingly. Or else Prepaid Taxi take nearly Rs 150 for this journey.
Buses for Chitpur are very very bleak in amount. So kindly don't opt for this.

My personal preference to reach KOAA any day would be ferry to bagh bazar and then local emu to kOAA. If nt available, shared auto to shyambazar bata. From there you can even walk if luggage free. Or else, auto again from R G kar. Obviously not for passengers with luggage as it involves many transitions

Busses take khanna shyambazar route. auTos bypass that and take tunnel route by the side of canal. So saves minimum 20 minutes
