How to Reach Kanpur by Air

The Chakeri airport, 12 kms out of town, has been serviced since 1996 by some domestic airlines. The better-connected Amausi Airport of Lucknow is 65 kms away. To get to the city, take a taxi.

How to Reach Kanpur by Rail

Most trains between the north and the east of India stop at Kanpur Central railway station. There is a Shatabdi service between Delhi and Kanpur, which gets you here in super quick time. There also are train connections with Lucknow, Agra and other important cities in Central India.

How to Reach Kanpur by Bus

State roadways buses connect Kanpur with Lucknow, Allahabad, Varanasi, Agra, Kannauj and Jhansi. The main bus stand or Collectorganj Bus Stand in Sadar Bazaar gets buses mainly from Lucknow, while the Chunniganj bus stand services buses from Delhi, Agra, Haridwar and other western towns.

Getting Around Kanpur

While Kanpur is served by a public bus service, it might be more convenient to hire cycle rickshaws, noisy Vikrams and auto-rickshaws for travelling in the city. For some fun and old-world charm you could also hop onto a shared horse-drawn 'tonga'. Private cars can be hired from reputed hotels, travel agents or at the Canal Road taxi stand. Rented cars are all chauffeur-driven; self-drive cars are not available for rent.
