Guwahati railway station is located in the heart of Guwahati, Assam. Just behind the Guwahati Railway Station is the Assam State Transport Corporation Bus Station. This is in the Paltan Bazaar area of Guwahati from where most of the private bus companies operate connecting Guwahati with the rest of the state and the Northeast.[1]

To reduce the traffic on the Guwahati junction, there is another railway station in the city at Maligaon is Kamakhya railway station. Almost all newly introduced trains run from Kamakhya station only. There were plans to make a new railway station at Beltola (in the southern part of Guwahati) to introduce trains towards Shillong. Plans have not been finalized and still in process.

Other stations[edit]

There are few other stations in and around the city accessible area. They are Narengi, New Guwahati, Azara, Amingaon, Changsari, Kamakya,Agthori and pandu
