first-rate citizen centric railway services to the people. Most of the
cities have a railway junction that bolsters railway travel across the
state. Through these trains, you can easily travel from one part of the
state to the other.
State-transport as well as privately owned buses run throughout Madhya
Pradesh. Options, in the form of local buses, semi-deluxe buses, deluxe
buses etc, are available for commuting from one city to the other. Most
of these buses run on a daily basis. Mini buses also offer short
distance services within the city.
Taxis are another mode of public transport that helps traveling from
one part of the state to the other as well as for traveling within a
particular city. In cities like Indore, you can avail ultra-modern radio
cabs called 'Metro Taxis', for commuting within the city. Metered taxis

Auto Rickshaws & Tempos
Auto Rickshaws (metered) and tempos (not metered) are the most
preferred modes of transport for traveling short distances, especially
within a particular city. Auto rickshaws are very convenient if you
travel in a group. The tempos on the other hand are often jam-packed. It
is always better to avail metered autos if you are familiar with the
route. Otherwise, you can negotiate the fare beforehand.
