India Transportation

  • ROADS

    Goa Transportation

    You'll see everyone whiz past on two-wheelers or scooters. Rent one for a week/duration of your stay but make sure to be safe, ride two to a scooter, and watch out for crazy driving! You'll need to watch the fuel tank and fill up before you return, so make note of the closest gas station since in most areas they are few and far between.

  • TAXIS

    Mumbai Transportation

    India in general, and Mumbai in particular, are seemingly unaffected by the American, European, and Japanese output of cars. India produces its own eccentric brand of cars, including the Ambassador, which appear to have the peculiar engineering stamp of British colonial production. Like most British cars, the design and quality of these cars are...

    Because of the weather and the average temperature, I suggest you move around on a cloudy day or in the evenings.

    Goa Transportation

    While on a tour of local villages we took a ferry across one of the several rivers that run into the sea near Panjim.

    Hyderabad Transportation

    It is very easy to get around by either taxi or rickshaw. If a meter is not being used, you must agree to a price before the ride. Try to have an idea of where you are going or how long it should take to get there so you don't get taken for a "ride", which never happened to us. You may also hire a taxi to drive you around sightseeing for the day....
