Passengers from South Kolkata Areas like Behala Sakuntala Park, Behala Chowrasta (Xing), Taratala Majerhat, Ekbalpore, and Belvedere Road (Alipore Zoo - Taj Bengal) can board the WBTC (Ex-CSTC) Bus Service on Route No: S-45 (Sakuntala Park to Kolkata Station) even between 5 to 6 AM as this bus starts with the day's First Trip during these early morning hours. Due to low traffic in the morning, this bus takes around 25 Minutes to cover a distance between Behala Bazar/Taratala and Kolkata Station via Park Street - Wellingtone Square - Manicktala Route. Passengers who want to board early morning trains like the Akal Takht Express from KOAA can give this bus a try and keep taxis as their 2nd (back-up) preference.

I am not sure but a good number of Yellow Taxis are available on this route. KOAA Station has very few WBTC Buses originating from its premises which I am unable to tell since the CSTC Website is inaccessible for me! :(
