Renting a bike is set to cost you anywhere between INR 300 to INR 1000 a day, depending on the make of the bike, fuel charges are extra.
  • Taxi

    If you want to head out of the city, you can take a cab from the numerous taxi stands that dot the cityscape.

  • Autorickshaws

    Fort Gate to the Main Square, from the Lake to the Fort, from the Desert Cultural Centre to Hanuman Chowk and on a handful of other routes. These rides come at an inexpensive INR 10 per person. If you are quoted a price more than that, be ready to pull up your socks and bargain!
  • Camel Carts
