Local Travel

A much favoured option for traveling through the state are buses. Extensive bus networks connect most of Assam to Guwahati. There are buses run both by the state government and private operators. One thing is certain whatever the kind of bus you board, the ride can be less spacious and bumpy at times, but if you are the kind who likes to travel impromptu they are definitely the quickest way to reach your destination.

Cycle-rickshaws are also popular mode of transport in the smaller towns of Assam. They are a convenient means of covering short distances. Not only do they precariously balance two to three people, but often carry merchandise as well. Within large cities like Guwahati, the most-sighted means of transport is arguably the auto-rickshaws and the city buses. They are the most practical conveyance for travelling within the city, and also for visiting destinations nearby. The rates quoted are generally negotiable. There are several car rental agencies in Guwahati and all big towns. You could consult your hotel or contact the cab operators for guidance on local car rentals.
