Kolkata (June 17,2023) : In a move aimed at enhancing the commuting experience for travelers and residents alike, the Kolkata Transport Corporation (KTC) has introduced night air-conditioned bus services connecting Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport to two prominent locations in the city—Howrah and Tollygunge. This development comes as a welcome relief for those seeking hassle-free and comfortable transportation during late hours.

The new night AC bus services will operate from 10:30 pm to 5:30 am, ensuring that passengers arriving or departing from the airport have reliable transportation options available throughout the night. The initiative seeks to bridge the gap in public transportation during the late hours, addressing the needs of night-shift workers, tourists, and individuals with late-night flights.

The services will cater to two significant destinations. The first route connects the airport to the iconic Howrah railway station, a major transportation hub in the city. The second route covers the distance between the airport and Tollygunge, a bustling residential and commercial area in South Kolkata. These routes have been carefully chosen to cater to the needs of a diverse range of commuters.

The night AC bus services will offer a comfortable and safe travel experience, equipped with modern amenities such as air conditioning, comfortable seating, and adequate security measures. The introduction of these services is expected to alleviate the concerns of individuals traveling during late hours and contribute to the overall convenience and accessibility of Kolkata's public transportation system. Passengers can avail themselves of these services by purchasing tickets at designated counters or using the KTC's digital ticketing platform. The nominal fares ensure affordability while maintaining the quality of service.

With the implementation of night AC bus services, Kolkata takes a significant stride towards becoming a more commuter-friendly city, prioritizing the needs of its residents and visitors. The KTC's proactive approach to enhancing public transportation options signifies the city's commitment to progressive urban development and improved mobility solutions.
