The Paltan Bazaar Bus Station has a number of private and Assam State Transport Company buses connecting the city to Tezpur (198 km), Kaziranga (215 km), Jorhat (303 km), Sibsagar (359 km) and Silchar (341 km). Rental cars are also available from travel agencies.
Guwahati has regular trains to Delhi, Kolkata, Dimapur, and New Jalpaiguri. It is recommended that you book your tickets atleast two months in advance, and reserve your seats for the return trip as well, if you are going by train. The Northeastern railways are not the best and trains get packed with unreserved, waitlisted travelers who bribe the TTR for seats! We recommend the Rajdhani express as it is definitely more comfortable than Brahmaputra Express or North East Express.
The Gopinath Bordoloi Airport is 23 km from the city and connects Guwahati to Delhi and Kolkata by air.
