is easily accessible, especially from Delhi and Jaipur. It has its own
domestic airport, which is just 5 km from the city and also doubles up
as the military airport. It is also well connected by a network of
trains to almost all the major destinations throughout the country and
some of the super-express trains that pass through it include the
Rajdhani Express and the Shatabdi Express. Both the government and
private buses and deluxe coaches run to and from Agra to all the nearby
major destinations within and outside Uttar Pradesh.
Agra's very own Kheria airport is barely 5 km from the city and
is also known as Agra Civil Enclaves. All the major domestic
airlines provide flight services to and from the city of Taj.
It is surprising to note that Agra has seven railway stations
of its own, excluding the Tundla junction, which is just 1 hour away
from the city. However the two major railway stations include Agra
Fort Railway Station and Agra Cantt Railway Station. Raja-ki-Mandi
is also a popular stopover point in the city. Most of the trains
running across India pass through the former two railway stations
including the luxury train 'Palace
on Wheels' and the super express trains known as Rajdhani
Express and Shatabdi Express. Some of the other major trains pass
through Tundla, well connected to the city by road.
Agra boasts of three National Highways including N.H. No. 2, 3
and 11. The government and private bus services are available to and
from Agra to all the nearby major destinations. One can hire
ordinary buses or the deluxe coaches, according to their
requirements. U.P. Tourism also conducts special guided tours for
the tourists, who come here just for a day, including Taj Mahal,
Agra Fort, Sikandra and Fatehpur Sikri in their itineraries.
