 By Airways

Bagdogra airport, about 15 km away is the International airport in the region. The airport, since falls within Air Force area (having some restrictions over length of runways and time of flight, etc.), is not well connected to most Indian cities. However, daily flights are available for the state capital Kolkata, New Delhi, Guwahati, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangkok and Paro.


 By Roadways

Vivekananda Road which is a four lane road, has been rebuilt connecting Burdwan Road to Mahabirsthan bringing much relief to the chaotic section of the city and bifurcation of Nivedita road is also going on. The major roads-Hill Cart Road, Bidhan Road and Sevoke Road were historically rail routes of the trains "Toy Trains" that went towards Sevoke / Darjeeling. Street lighting and bifurcation of Hill Cart Road took place only in 1988 during the Nehru Cup football tournament. The Mahabirsthan area recently got a fly-over the first of its kind in the city.
National Highway no. 31 and 31A passes through Siliguri. In a recent national level project of building a golden quadrangle linking the major cities of India the NH 31 has been converted into a four way expressway.
The neighbouring countries like Nepal, Bhutan and border region of Bangladesh are also connected through the road network.

 By Railways

Three important railway stations in Sliguri:

1. Siliguri Town - An oldest station in the area. Which Opened on 23 Aug 1880 during the British Raj, this station used to be the terminus for the trains coming from Kolkata, and the starting point for the world-famous Darjeeling Himalayan Railway for journey to Darjeeling. It is this station where such world-renowned personalities as Rabindranath Tagore, Chittaranjan Das and Subhash Chandra Bose set their feet on their way to Darjeeling and other places.

2. Siliguri Junction - Opened in 1949, which is the point of departure of all trains to the north-eastern states, until the broad gauge was extended to Dibrugarh. Siliguri Junction is the only station in India with tracks of all the three gauges used in India.

3. New Jalpaiguri - Opened in 1961 as a totally greenfield project 6 km south of Siliguri. Initially named New Siliguri (but, later renamed New Jalpaiguri as it is located in Jalpaiguri District) this is now the most important station in the region. It is also known as NJP. This station connects Siliguri to every nook and corner of the country by railway. The city has now been expanded and included New Jalpaiguri as one of its ward of Siliguri Municipal Corporation. The Darjeeling Himalayan Toy train is the main attraction of this station.
With the extension of broad-gauge railway track to the Siliguri Junction station, people can now travel directly to the heart of the city without having to alight at New Jalpaiguri. This new broad-gauge track extends to the old Dooars metre-gauge track up to Alipurduar and beyond. Travelling over this railway line is a beautiful experience as it passes through the picturesque tea gardens of the Dooars area in the backdrop of Darjeeling and Bhutan hills.
