When alighting at PTKC, exit the station from the other side of the station opposite to platform 1 to reach pathankot cantt bus stop. You may have to cross the tracks to reach this side as it is not a properly laid path. This helps you avoid auto/cycle rickshaw. They charge Rs. 50-100 for the same trip from the rickshaw stand outside the station and take you to the same place to which you could've come by walk.
