Once there, the only thing that bothers any traveller is how to travel within the city, right? If that’s the exact case with you then I am going to give you some gyaan about the different ways of travelling in Indore. Don’t worry! Thank me after reading the following.

  • By Bus

    Buses by all means can be termed as one of the best ways to travel within Indore. There are buses that operate for reaching to all the major parts of the city which includes all major and minor areas. Using the bus service is also one of the cheapest modes of travelling and anyone who is aware of the location of their particular destination. The fares for buses vary from INR 5 to INR 25 per person depending on the distance covered. However, it seems comfortable, travelling in buses can be a bit tiresome if you don’t get a seat. Try and take care of your belongings and children if there are any with you. The condition of the new buses is decent but there are still some of the old ones running if you want to avoid one.

  • By Autorickshaws

    Auto rickshaws is going to be a treat for you if you want to explore the city in a mode that is just yours. Auto rickshaws give you privacy, comfort, safety and they are a faster mode of transport any day. Also, you can rely on auto rickshaws if you want to travel in the night. However, there is nothing too much to worry about in the city. The fares for the autos can range from INR 20 and can go up to a couple of hundred bucks depending upon the distance travelled by the mode. You should always take an idea from the locals about the fares for your destination as sometimes the quoted fares can be higher than what is usually charged. There are shared autos also that operate for specific locations which can be an option if you do not mind sharing.

  • By Taxi

    Taxi is another one of the comfortable options for travelling in Indore. The taxis charge you INR 10 per kilometre along with INR 35 as the starting rate. There is less chance of haggling over the fares with this mode as it is fare-metre driven.

These are some of the most common modes. However, there are cycle rickshaws and of course there are your feet which are always faithful to you no matter what. Whenever possible, try and use them for exploring the city where artists like MF Hussain and Lata Mangeshkar spent their childhood at your own sweet pace. Do that and you will not be disappointed in any way!
