Howrah Railway Station to Airport : Check for Prepaid Taxi Counter - for one entire cab Rs 302 only. There are 4 to 5 counters outside station and easy to find cab.
I see basic fare for 2km is mere Rs 55.
Howrah to Sealdah Rs 110.
Do not fall victim of Ola or Uber or roadside agent demanding exorbitant number 600-700 Bucks.
Yes. Prepaid taxi is the best. But one has to wait in que for almost 45 mins to 1 hr in busy times.
For Airport even AC buses also good.
Yes, I had checked AC bus also.
Bus number VS2 originate right from Howrah Railway Station and Terminates at Airport, Fare was around 50 - 55 Rs per person.
Yes VS2 is better than AC39 which also Terminates at Airport but takes longer route
If you see Kalka Mail in Winters, note that the Legend has Rescheduling chance from Howrah and Kalka. #laterunnerfromER
My upcoming trip is in 12322 Kolkata Mail (Imperial Mail) on 13th December 2016 & I'm very much worried, I'm surely anticipating re-scheduling of it's departure from Mumbai itself, what's your say?
If your 12322 Imperial Mail is Rescheduled by 8-10 hrs, you can cancel your ticket and go via Nagpur in 12809 Mumbai Mail.
take NGP Route.
if u have WL/RAC Tkt, better cancel & book in NGP route trains.
No, my exact destination is Gaya.Jn

HWH-SHM / SHM-HWH:
Take the prepaid taxi from Howrah. Cheap and safest. Fare would be just Rs 100. Shalimar station is in Shibpur area near around the Botanical gardens. One have to go via the Vidyasagar setu to reach this part of Kolkata. Or one more option is Check whether your express train from SHM has halt at Santragachi. If yes then hop into any Mecheda/Panskura/kharagpur side SER EMU from HOWRAH and alight at Santragachi. Board your express train from SRC. This option is very
Are bus services available for SHM from SRC?
Yes plenty of busses will be waiting if you can cRoss the highway road via subway...around 200 metres away from platform
Pretty useful info
Also, Apart from 15021 and 22213, all other trains leaving SHM has a stoppage at SRC. So SRC is a better option any day
Buses are available from the Main road outside Santragachi.
If you don't wish for a hassled journey (considering the conditions of Kolkata buses here) , there are 4 EMU trains running from SRC to SHM (3 Dedicated and 1 Mecheda-SHM). Check out departure timings of your train and hop into any of these EMU or else majority of SHM trains (except PNBE duronto) halt at SRC also. Make yourself comfortable.
In that case, why is IR developing SHM instead of SRC as a terminal point? Already SRC has gotten some trains in its kitty, why not shift more trains there instead of SHM?
No further space at SRC
SRC will always be more convenient than SHM because its right on the highway. But SHM there is lot of space for augmentation of platforms. Also, SRC is congested due to trains from and to howrah. So 2 to 3 platforms always occupied by howrah passenger express demu memu trains...No such need at SHM
Best board buses that are bound towards BE College/ B. Garden from Hwh to reach Shalimar LC Gate. From this point, e-rickshaws (locally called as Toto) are available till SHM station premises.
Alternatively, Totos to Avani Mall is available near PF-23 side. One could reserve a Toto from Avani Mall to Shalimar Railway Station as well.
