Bardhaman is well connected to the rest of India by both rail and road. Regular rail and bus services ply to and fro the city of Bardhaman, buses being operated both by private and government owners, especially the West Bengal State Road Transport Corporation. Owing to the absence of a proper, commercial airport, the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport in Kolkata, 102 km away from Bardhaman, is the nearest airport that connects Bardhaman to the rest of India. The main Howrah-Delhi railway track also passes through Bardhaman.
Getting to Bardhaman by air doesn't involve too many hassles. A flight to Kolkata International Airport followed by a near 2-hour ride covering 96 km will see you at your destination.
Nearest Airport: Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport (CCU) - 88 kms from Bardhaman

NH 2 runs through the city. Bardhaman has a very easy and well-planned road route. The two main bus stands are Alisha Bus Stand and Nababhat Bus Stand. Regular buses connect Bardhaman to all parts of West Bengal. Some of them even have inter state connecting services.
Unlike an airport, Bardhaman has its own railway station. The Bardhaman Railway Station connects Bardhaman to all major parts of the country. Trains can be taken from New Delhi and Mumbai. The main Howrah-Delhi railway track also passes through Bardhaman. You can take a local train from Howrah and reach Bardhaman in 2 hours.
Travelling in the city is mostly done using cabs and, occasionally, buses. The most easy and cheaply available mode of transport is the battery operated rickshaws. The state division also has state run buses covering most of the city. But once you get down at a place, going to nearby places on foot is not only easy, it's also feasible.
