Agra is situated at a distance of 265 km from Jaipur. Land of one of the Seven Wonders of the World; the Taj Mahal, Agra is well connected to Jaipur by road and train.
However, the best way to reach Agra from Jaipur is by road, a journey of about 5 ? hours by bus. On the way, there are present several ATMs, hospitals and rest stops. Besides eating joints such as Golden Dragon and Niros, there are various dhabas serving traditional Rajasthani and Mughlai food on the way.
Transport options from Jaipur to Agra
Jaipur to Agra By Bus: Take a direct bus from Jaipur to Agra, which takes about 5 ? hours. The Agra bus stand is situated at a distance of 2.5 kilometres from the city centre. Several AC and Non-AC buses are available for Agra from Jaipur. The fares of these buses range between INR 190 to 315. This mode is best for youngsters, individuals and backpackers.
I think car is the best way to travel as there is no Airport in Agra. You can enjoy the whole experience and stop anywhere you want. There are quite a few good restaurants on the way and some serve really great buffet food.
If you are coming from Jaipur side then it is a good option to visit Fatehpur Sikri before entering Agra. That is what we did and then we could relax at the hotel for the rest of the day.
Jaipur to Agra route is four lane tracking and it is better to move in morning near about 5-6 am if you want to return back to Jaipur in night. There are many sightseeing attraction on the way like Abhaneri step well, deeg palace and Bharatpur bird sanctuary, Bharatpur museum and Fateh pur sikiri.
You will find good midway like Gangour motel, Rajasthani motel and one more midway that is RTDC mahuwa midway. It is unsafe during night to stop at any dhabas or restaurant where usually truck drivers stop for rest.
AC bus should be chosen to travel so that you will not be tired and can enjoy further in Agra. From Jaipur it takes around 5 hours to reach Agra. Bus stops at midway for 20 minutes where one can take light breakfast of good quality. I suggest to carry good collection of songs with you to enjoy journey with music.
For the journey, Jaipur to Agra I have decided to travel by bus. I booked my ticket in a bus service. My ticket was sleeper coach. It was really nice coach. The bus was also very good. Bus staff are also very good and nice behavior person. The bus was too in quality like sleeper coach, window mirror, drinking water etc. WiFi facility was also available in this bus. LCD TV was also in every coach for entertainment, I enjoyed it. After all I want to say that I am fully satisfied with this bus service.
It was early morning when we left for Agra at sharp 6:30 am and the train was at 7:15 am. It is not necessary to pick anything like food items because the train itself provides all the food for the breakfast. The service of the train was awesome and we didnít feel tired while we travelled through.
