I had visited Ajmer from Jaipur last weekend. It was a wonderful journey I had. I booked an AC sleeper in The Train Udaipur-Jaipur express the train number was 12991. The ticket was booked through IRCTC and there was option for food delivery in the train itself. I got my refreshments on my seat directly and the quality of food was very well. The train was at its correct time i.e. 2:00 Pm and it took nearly 2 hours to reach the destination. My overall experience of the journey was good in the ac coach but if you are planning to travel in general coach you might miss the seats . As there is so much crowd in the general coaches.
I was in Ajmer and had a flight to catch from Jaipur Airport. So I was looking for some taxi who provides some discount for one-way travel. Luckily there were many who provided one-way taxi at different rates. It was difficult to decide who to trust.
Honestly I booked the cheapest one and though I will take my chance :). Booked online through oneway.cab (their name said they must be expert in one-way taxi so second reason for picking them up).
Luckily service was ok, not much to complain. On-Time, Good car etc.
I had a journey to Ajmer via government bus service. It was not that good journey instead it was just mediocre. Seats of bus were drastically bad and not comfortable at all. Also summer weather just made condition worse. Overall it wasn't a good journey.
There are regular buses to Ajmer, it takes about three hours to reach Ajmer. The roads are very good and journey is enjoyable. Ajmer is brilliant to walk around. It is not the lap of luxury, but you get to see a different view of the town and the fair.
