  Public Transport
The city woefully lacks a good public transport system. The bus service is fairly unreliable and the buses are often packed to capacity. Most of the locals rely on cycles, two-wheelers and motorcars to move around the city. In the absence of a private vehicle, visitors have to rely on the ubiquitous auto rickshaws.

The minimum fare for travel in an auto is Rs 6/- and you pay Rs 4/- for every additional unit on the meter. I.e. you pay Rs. 6/-for
1 unit displayed on the meter Rs. 10/- for 2 units, Rs. 14/- for 3 units and so on. The city Municipal Corporation also plies
Air-conditioned luxury buses within the city for a 'Pune Darshan'. The buses can be boarded at either the main Bus Depot
near the railway station or the Deccan Gymkhana Bus Depot. The charges are Rs 100/- per person. From 9 am to 5 pm visitors will be taken to twenty places of interest within the city.

For a visit to neighbouring Mumbai, there are six convenient trains, three in the morning and three in the evening that one could board for visiting Mumbai. A single ticket costs around Rs. 70/-and a seat in the air-conditioned chair car coach would cost approximately Rs 230/-. The rate for a seat in a 'share a taxi' to Mumbai is approximately Rs.230/-.  

  Private Taxi Service
One can hire private taxis of different luxury categories on a day-to-day basis. The average rental per day will be around Rs.550/- for 8 hours up to 80 kms. Every extra hour costs Rs 40/-, and every extra km travelled will cost Rs 5/-.
