the transport system in this state is pathetic. the tourist is virtually at the mercy of the auto rickshaw drivers or the cycle-rickshaws( an inhuman form of transport of transport not seen much around nowadays!) both the categories overcharge to glory! a distance of mere 4 km would cost u anywhere from 40 to 80 rs! the same trip elsewhere would cost u a meagre rs 20! the govt seems to be least concerned. hardly any public transport. nobody as far as i know rents out bikes which u could drive around like they have in goa.
Unique Suggestions: ur best bet would be to have a friend who could lend u his bike or car for the duration of ur stay.
