How to Reach Chandigarh

How to Reach Chandigarh by Air

Chandigarh is served by the national carrier and is connected with Delhi, Amritsar and Mumbai. From the airport one can get a taxi or auto rickshaw to get to your destination in the city. The city centre is 11 kms away.

How to Reach Chandigarh by Rail

The railway station gets convenient trains from the plains, and even two fast running "Shatabdis' from Delhi. The station is located away from the city centre, but a half-hourly bus service runs from the station to the city centre, though it may be more convenient to take a pre-paid auto rickshaw or taxi.

How to Reach Chandigarh by Bus

Chandigarh’s Inter-State Bus Terminus, in the heart of the city at sector 17, is a busy focal point. Buses coming in from Delhi, Manali and Shimla also stop at sector 22. Chandigarh is the transit point for travellers going to Amritsar (6 hours), Pathankot (7 hours), Dharamshala (10 hours), Shimla (5 hours), Kullu (12 hours) and Manali (10 hours). Delhi is 248 kms away, taking about 5 hours to reach. One can also drive into Chandigarh from neighbouring states. The approach roads are all in good condition and driving can be a pleasant experience.

Getting Around Chandigarh

Chandigarh is a vast city, which is best covered either in auto rickshaws, taxis or car. The bus network is quite wide though buses are crowded. Private taxis are available at the bus terminus. Rented cars are all chauffeur driven. Self-driven vehicles are not available. Cycle rickshaws are also available, but can be useful only for short distances.
