    Jodhpur Airport

    by Donna_in_India Written Jan 27, 2015

    Jodhpur (domestic) Airport is a small airport with service from/to many cities in India. Once you land, you'll taxi close to the terminal building and walk from the plane to the terminal. There is only one baggage belt and a tourist information "stand", which was closed when we landed. I didn't see any food/shopping options but the departure area was closed when we arrived.

    Outside the terminal is a prepaid taxi stand and a prepaid rickshaw stand (first time I'd ever seen that!). The distance to the city is only a few kilometers.

    Jodhpur Airport is a civil airport that shares its airside with the Jodhpur Air Base of the Indian Air Force so NO photos are allowed!!

    Jodhpur Auto Driver - esp for single/ women

    by ki2140 Written Aug 12, 2011

    Mr. Habib Gouri, an auto rickshaw driver from Jodhpur, made our trip to Rajasthan extremely memorable. We ran into him by chance, and he took us on a tour around the city. Since the old city has narrow lanes, auto rickshaws are easier to go around in than taxis. He was humble, prompt, helpful, reliable, and a joy to meet. Highly recommended for female travellers since he is very polite and sincere. And in our experience, he was very fair in pricing and was not pushy at all.

    On auto around Jodhpur

    by satchmo1963 Written Dec 7, 2008

    Auto rickshaws provide the best option of maneouvering your way around Jodhpur, especially when it comes to tackling the byzantine alleys of the old part of town.
    Before embarking on a round of the key points of interest, take the trouble to bargain hard with your friendly neighbourhood auto-wallah.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We arrived at Jodhpur after a 4 hour drive from Bikaner.The roads are busy, but in fairly good condition.Distance was about 240 kms from Bikaner. One can usually arrange car & driver as most hotels have a travel desk or connection. Trains can easily be booked at short notice.

    'Distances from other cities by car:

    Jaipur - 345 kms
    Jaisalmer - 290 kms
    Mumbai - 1075 kms
    Delhi - 590 kms.

    There are train connections from all major cities- the train from Delhi is overnight and day.

    From whence???

    Bus from Pushkar

    by Willettsworld Written Nov 15, 2007

    I took a government bus from Pushkar to Jodhpur from the bus station that is located to the north of Pushkar town near the track that takes you up to the Pap Mochani Temple. Unlike other buses in India, the one I took had good legroom. It left as 8.30am, took 5hrs and cost Rs100. The roads out of Pushkar are very good but be warned, they get worse the further you go towards Jodhpur. You'll get a good taste of rural Rajasthan on this trip and go through some real rural villages where the roads are all but washed away. The roads improve dramatically near Jodhpur. In fact we drove on a 4 lane toll road for about 30 miles. The Government Roadways bus stop is on Raika Bagh in Jodhpur.

    Train to Jaisalmer

    by Willettsworld Written Nov 15, 2007

    Jodhpur Junction Railway Station is served by Northern Railways in Rajasthan. I took an early morning train from here to Jaisalmer (No. 4059) which left late but what can you do. It left 2 hours late at 8:45am and arrived in Jaisalmer at 3pm. On the way you'll notice that you'll arrive at a station in one direction and then leave it going back in the opposite direction. All strange!

    Auto-rickshaw

    by Willettsworld Written Nov 15, 2007

    As anywhere in India, auto-rickshaw's are widely available. I arrived in Jodphur by bus from Pushkar and took one into the city centre to my hotel which cost Rs30. I then left Jodhpur on the train to Jaisalmer and took another to the station which cost Rs40. If you want to visit the Umaid Bhavan Palace which is a fair distance outside the city centre, then you can take an auto-rickshaw. Mine cost Rs180 return plus waiting time.

    "Auto" Rickshaws

    by Canadienne Written Feb 12, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Autos are the standard mode of transportation in many Indian cities. They turn on a dime, careen around corners, and seem to narrowly avoid pedestrians too often to make for a relaxing trip. . .the excitement is almost as much as that at an amusement park ride.

    Jodhpur has particular panache when it comes to decorations ~ there are stars, stripes, movie posters and decals all over, personalizing each ride you take.

    Gateway to Jaisalmer

    by aukjejetty Written Apr 21, 2003

    Jodhpur is the major transportation center for onward journey to the desert town of Jaisalmer, this is what we did. You can also go by bus to Udaipur, Jaipur, Ajmer, Ahmedabad, and Delhi. Although if you can take a train, I would skip the bus, it is not a safe ride!

    Getting around Jodhpur will include the use of Taxis, Auto-rickshaws and Tongas (horse drawn carriages). A taxi stand is near the main railway station.
