Jaipur Local Transport
Jaipur is a city with innumerous forts, palaces, gardens and palatial monuments. And while staying in Jaipur , one could either opt for rental cars to take you around , but the cheaper options always is to avail the well-connected public transport system that would take you around to all places of interest without getting too heavy on your pockets. Buses from the Rajasthan State Roadways, taxis and cabs are easy to get and convenient for Tourists. Auto-rickshaw and cycle-rickshaw are good for short distance travels. Bus routes connect every nook and corner of the city at very nominal fairs.
The bus services operate under Jaipur City Transport Services Limited of Rajasthan State Roadways Transport Corporation under JNNURM. The buses come in two variants, the normal ones and the low floor buses apt for children and aged travellers. Air-Conditioned buses run across the perimeters of the city and charge slightly more than the non-air-conditioned counterparts.
The city has three main bus terminuses namely Vaishali Nagar, Vidyadhar Nagar and Sanganer. Regular buses at impressive frequency even ply to neighboring towns. One could alternatively opt for hiring SUVs, MUVs, Luxury cars, Premium Vehicles and even rare vintage collections. Most chauffeurs driving the luxury range vehicles are affluent in English and aware of relevant spots worth visiting, which is why the need for a dedicated Tour guide can be often avoided.
Cars could be taken on rent for Airport travel or pickup from the Jaipur Railway station. Half-day rented cars are available for 4 hours or 40 kilometers, whereas a full day car could be rented for 8 hours or 80 kilometers. Such rented car services could be either booked online prior to actual travel dates. Most luxury Hotels have tie-ups with Car agencies, which is why, tourists could book such rented car services from the Hotel reception desk.
