For the most part there are a lot of shared taxicabs accessible outside the NJP station. The common taxicabs are typically jeeps and take two people in front beside the driver, four in the secondary lounge and four others at the back seat. So they won’t begin unless they have at least 8-10 travelers. While the common jeep is advantageous, quick and modest, one imperative is you can not convey excessively of substantial baggage. Every one of the sacks and bags are conveyed for nothing out of pocket on the rooftop with no extra charge.
On the off chance that you need somewhat more solace, you can book both the seats in front or a column of seats at the back by paying for those additional seats. At that point the driver won’t let different travelers possess the seats you saved regardless of whether they go exhaust. At times, you may get shared cabs in type of littler vehicles like Maruti Vans too.

Furthermore, they will obviously charge part more. While taxis do employ on the primary streets to Darjeeling late at evenings, yet keep an eye out for the haze. It can get greatly unsafe if mist upsets perceivability which is regularly the case around evening time. So unless completely vital, abstain from driving during the evening and plan ahead of time to remain back for the night at Siliguri (a twin city just 5kms from NJP). I would at any rate abstain from driving for more than 3 hours in murkiness and on winding sloping streets with an obscure driver.
