Local Transportation in Delhi

Local Transportation in DelhiThe local transportation is the lifeline of the capital city of New Delhi. More than half of the population in Delhi is dependent on local transport for commuting purposes. The means & modes of transport in New Delhi are many, ranging from the cheapest trains and buses to the expensive taxis.

One of the cheapest modes of transport in Delhi consists of the local buses. Infact, the capital city boasts of one of the largest bus transport systems in India. Almost all the buses in Delhi are owned either by the State-owned Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) or the private contractors. The bus fares are in denomination of 2, 5, 7 and 10 rupees. Quite some time back, the Government introduced environmentally friendly CNG buses in the city that have now completely taken over.

Taxis are easily available in Delhi for hiring purposes. The taxis are mostly operated by DTC, the Indian Tourism Ministry and various private operators. They are available both for local commuting as well as long distance purposes. However, one has to go to the taxi stand or telephone a taxi service provider for hiring them.
