How to Reach Dehradun by Rail

There are many train connections (Railway station – Ph: 0135 – 622131) with New Delhi. Travel up on the superfast luxury Shatabdi Express or the overnight Mussoorie Express and the Doon Express. Other major cities connected by rail are Lucknow, Varanasi, Mumbai and Calcutta. From the station you can take a bus or hop into an auto rickshaw to take you to your destination in the city.

How to Reach Dehradun by Bus

You can drive to Dehradun from any neighbouring state or town. The drive from Delhi takes six hours and the road is good in parts. Also, it helps if you have a car at your disposal in Dehradun.

Buses arrive at the Delhi Bus Stand on Gandhi Road, Mussoorie Bus Stand near the railway station or the City Bus Stand near the Parade Grounds. There are regular services connecting Mussoorie, Haridwar, Nainital, Kullu, Shimla, Agra and Delhi.

Getting Around Dehradun

The City Bus stand, near the Clock Tower is a ten-minute walk from the railway station. Crowded, confused and messy. But there is some method in the madness. Taxis and auto-rickshaws and shared Vikrams (large auto rickshaws) are also available for travel within town. Cars can be hired from private travel agents. All private rented cars are chauffeur–driven. Self-driven cars are not available for hire.

Rajpur Road is the arterial road that runs the length of the town.
