Tips for Travellers

Where you can't walk, try the public transport. It's safe, it's well-organised and reasonably cheap. Trams are for when you're not in a hurry. The Metro, India's first and still running largely on time, travels along a north-south axis and cuts transit time by three-fourths. The yellow taxis are good for late nights. They go by the meter and the drivers are good. The buses are usually very crowded but if you do get on one there's no dearth of help from your fellow passengers.
