Still a small town in spirit, Tiruchirappalli lends itself to easy exploration and leisurely wandering. Some of the modes of travelling in Tiruchirappalli that you have before you are:

  • By Cab

    Tiruchirappalli doesn’t really have any organized independent cab service as yet and it will be a better option to ask your hotel staff or travel desk to provide you with one. Not only will this option be more reliable and give you better rates, you can use it to cover all your sightseeing destinations in Trichy and request for the same on all days.

  • By Autorickshaw

    Covering the city in autorickshaws is an economical and convenient option as well. You can easily find them operating in the main city. However, they generally do not run on meter and the driver might ask an amount you have no way of confirming then whether it is exorbitant. Before you head out discuss with the hotel staff the places you intend to visit and ask them what is the likely amount one should give for them when travelling in an auto rickshaw. Being city natives or at least more familiar than you with the city routes, they can give you an approximate idea of the charges to expect and bargain with the auto driver.

  • By Bus

Yet another mode of public transport are the buses. Tiruchirappalli has a fair number of buses covering each route and region. Not only is it the most economical means of travelling but also safe at nights too. However, communication can be a bit of an issue. The bus conductor as well as the locals in the bus  may not be very comfortable with English and do not expect understanding of Hindi at all. It might be a good idea to ask the hotel staff the numbers of buses covering the places you want to visit and their clear pronunciation, so that it becomes easier to identify the bus and ask for the right ticket as well as get down at the right point.

Fall into step with the rhythmic walk of the city and cruise through smooth roads and pathways flanked by serenity and spirituality and in the same beat, urbanization.
