An important junction, Agra is connected by fast trains with almost all important cities of North and South India. Shatabdi Express
provides a convenient connection with Delhi and Gwalior. Agra has two
major railway stations - Agra Cantonment (commonly referred as Agra
Cantt) and Agra Fort.
Reasonably good buses leave from Idgah Bus Stand for Delhi, Mathura, Bharatpur, Jaipur, Gwalior, Khajuraho, Lucknow and
Ajmer. For Rajasthan, road connection is the best - Rajasthan Government
buses depart from a small booth outside Hotel Sheetal, close to the Idgah
Three-wheeled auto rickshaws and cycle rickshaws are available for local commuting but pre-fixing of fares is advisable.
While polluting vehicles are not allowed near the Taj Mahal, battery buses are available.
