How can I commute within Delhi?

If you are visiting Delhi for the first time and do not have a hired taxi, there are many other ways of commuting:

1. Cab Aggregators Ola/Uber
Make sure that you have Ola and Uber downloaded. Booking a cab is a super convenient way of commuting in Delhi. These services will ensure that the fare is fair! Sometimes this can be an expensive affair, mostly, these services ensure hassle-free trips.

2. Delhi Metro
If you have to cover long distances and the roads are jam-packed, the Delhi Metro is the best alternative. The minimum fare that can be charged is INR 30 and the maximum is INR 60, for one trip.

Smart Card: While tokens are available, if you are looking forward to a lot of travelling by metro, a smart card is viable, which can be issued at a cost of INR 150. Then it has to be recharged (the minimum amount has to be INR 200 and maximum INR 2000). Metro cards can be recharged using Credit Card/Debit Card as well as cash.
