NJP Pax willing to travel to KOAA should book from SGUJ with BP at NJP to enjoy GNWL Quota if NJP KOAA is in WL.
Negligible fare difference.

Buses/ MUV (shared) are available from outside the station for Darjeeling, Kalimpong, Mirik etc. There is a bus terminus there. Look for the counter to book seat.
If you're going to Kalimpong, request to give you right side window seat so that you can enjoy the terrific beauty of the road.
SGUJ station is very near to the Mahananda bridge- within walking limits.

Buses are avble from SGUJ while taxis are available from outside the NJP railway station as well as from Siliguri . Buses(mini buses really!) charge about 175 rs while the taxis charge around 275 per pax on sharing basis. However an entire Sumo can be availed for rs 2400 from outside NJP railway station. There is a huge board outside the NJP station which has the authorized taxi rates to DJ, Gangtok and Siliguri bus stand. For Darjeeling the rates are slightly less than what they are for Gangtok-around rs 2200 for an entire taxi.

Bhutan tips:
Between Siliguri and Phuentsholing, there are number of buses that ply every day and the journey takes about 4 hours. Royal Bhutan Government bus leaves from Siliguri Tenzing Norgay Bus Terminus (Hill Cart Road) near Heritage Hotel every day at 7:30am and 1:30pm. There are also regular buses from P.C. Mittal Bus Terminus located at Sevoke Road in Siliguri for Phuentsholing. You can buy the tickets on entering the bus. While going towards Bhutan, all these buses go through Jaigaon (the bordering town in West Bengal), cross over the border and go all the way to Phuentsholing. On their way back, they start from Phuentsholing.
Note

that there are two routes between Siliguri and Phuentsholing, one via the Sevoke bridge, the other via Alipurdwar and Hasimara. The sevoke bridge route is bit rough road, so it takes bit more time but The second route is better and is part of the Siliguri - Guwahati highway.
The Tenzing Norway bus stand is near to this railway station (hardly 200 m away).

Agree. Here's the Hasimara Tips.
/blog/post/1719398
But i gave this Siliguri tip also because many people reach Siliguri via flights to Bagdogra Airport. And all the time trains are not available to Hasimara, So for those who wish not to take train and direct bus will work then this tip works.
