It is very well connected to rest of the Assam with Bus and Trains.The buses available are operated through Private travel operators as well as State run ASTC (Assam State Transport Corporation). The buses are very comfortable and luxurious compared to the ones found all over India with 2+1 and 2+2 seating arrangement, A/C, Videocoaches etc.
