Your sightseeing plans are ready, the shopping hotspots are calling out to you and you are all set to explore this dazzling city. Travelling around a city has never been easier. With so many ways of travelling, Lucknow makes things immensely simple for its visitors.
Here is a glimpse of how you can travel within and around the city.

  • Rickshaws

    While the world passes by in a soothingly slow pace, take in the sights Lucknow has to offer. From crowded streets bustling with haggling shoppers, excited shop keepers and a furor of horns to the moments of quiet in lone lanes, Lucknow is vibrancy personified. Hop on to a rickshaw and enjoy Lucknow as it is. Chaotic and picturesque with its alluring old world charm. With rickshaws at every nook and cranny, finding a ride here is never a problem. Depending on the distance you are travelling, the rickshaw driver can charge anywhere from INR 10 to INR 50. It is best to know a little bit about the place you are going to and bargain accordingly.

  • Autorickshaws

    Found almost all over India, this little dynamite of a vehicle promises you a different experience if nothing else. Autos have their own charm. Hop onto one and you’ll know. Found all over the city, autos usually run by the meter. Yet, if you have come across an auto without one, it is best to bargain. A little knowledge about the distance of your desired destination will help you haggle and settle the appropriate fare. Your hotel staff could maybe assist you in your travelling schedule with little details about sightseeing or shopping places in Lucknow.

  • Buses

    The lifeline of local transport, cheaper and slower than the auto, buses can be a saviour during difficult times. With regular buses plying to and fro all over the city, you can always board one for an enthralling local flavour.
    There are also buses offering tourist tours to significant sites in the city. Charging a nominal fee, these buses will take you around for an estimated time and on an organised itinerary. It would be best to get information about these tourist tours from your hotel or the
    tourism office in Lucknow.

  • Cabs

    Relax and move around the city at your own pace. Cabs give you the advantage of moving around the city as you please and without any hassles. If you don't want to hunt for a taxi everyday, you can ask your hotel to book you a cab for your stay in the city. You can also call up local operators in the city and arrange the cab according to your convenience. It is advisable to decide and settle on the price before you set out.
    You can call
    Clear Car Rental at +91-88888-55220, a reputed operator for your bookings.

So once in Lucknow, travelling is definitely not one of your concerns. Enjoy and explore the enthralling city all you can.
