Bus AC Sleeper, Jai Shree Ganesh Yatra, Oct 17, 2023
THE BUS WAS black and not white like in the picture. The place was easy to find, and they called me an hour before time too. They don't really speak English. The AC was working but I didn't use it at all. The ride was alright. I will take it again.

Hans travel provide the best overnight bus service from Delhi to Agra. The staff went out of there way to ensure we boarded the bus after a delay making it to the pick up point due to a road accident en route. The bus is clean and comfortable. Highly recommend !
Bus AC Sleeper, Hans Travels, Aug 24, 2023
Bus was late, and the information to find the bus is not enough. Also it did not have seats checked, anyone could take any seat and it arrived late also.
Bus A/C Semi Sleeper, Rawat Holidays, Aug 22, 2023

Train #20172 EC - Extended AC Chair Class, Indian Railways, Aug 19, 2023
The good was it gets you from point a to b Really cheap as well The bad - 2/2 of my ride were over an hour delayed. Over crowded beyond number of seat.
Train #22868 3A - AC 3-Tier Sleeper, Indian Railways, Jun 16, 2023
It’s been the typical local bus, no one else books a ticket online for it. Small, broken seats, packed, people’s extremities in your face, the fans worked sometimes and it took one hour longer than it said, for we-don’t-know-why-standing for ages at random places. You’ll find the bus stop with Google’s help, the pdf details are not very informative about that
Bus Non-AC Seater, Taj Express Bus, May 5, 2023
Ticket booking with 12go was perfect. All other Indian forum's were very different. There was little to no help for tourists at the station. The train was OK. The meal is a nice touch for travellers. Again agra cantt full of scammers and no help for tourist.
