Jaipur, capital of India's largest state Rajasthan, is an enthralling historical city. The city's colourful, chaotic streets ebb and flow with a heady brew of old and new. Near India's capital Delhi, it is one of the fastest growing cities of the country.
Being one of the fastest growing cities of India, Jaipur also boasts of multiple options for getting around the city. But this also means traffic, congestion, and crowds, and there are times you will get somewhere faster on foot than in a vehicle.
- Autorickshaw: By and large, autorickshaw's are the best way around the city for short distances. Due to high bargaining for rides, using autorickshaw ride hailing apps like Jugnoo and Ola Auto are the best options. You can pay metered prices and both apps allow payment by cards as well as in cash.
- Taxi: The taxis in Jaipur are very convenient and comfortable for longer distances and durations. Travel agents and hotel can book you taxis for half day and full day if needed. If you need point to point taxies, taxi hailing apps like Uber and Ola are the best and most economical bet.
- Metro: Jaipur Metro is a rapid rail transit system in the city of Jaipur. Inaugurated in 2014, currently it only has one route line operational. The metro stations on the route have economical feeder electric autorickshaw service, so if your destination is near the metro line, this is a better option to get around.
- Bus: BRTS (Bus Rapid Transit System) run by JCTSL has air conditioned low floor buses running on 14 routes in the city. Although comfortable, they are quite unreliable in terms of time due to traffic congestion around the city.
