In the city of Lahore, streets are filled with transportation options. However, determining which is right for your stay in this Punjabi city can be a difficult decision.
Brightly-coloured buses offer a cheap way of exploring the city. However, this money-saving option comes at a cost to your comfort as well as your free time. They can often be crowded and very slow. There may also be a language barrier, so ensure you are aware of routes and destinations before boarding. If you choose to travel by bus, always remember that the seats nearest to the driver are for women and children only.
Taxis in Lahore are frequently yellow, so are very easy to spot in the distance. There are many taxis within the city and are most commonly found at hotels and shopping areas. Fares should be negotiated prior to setting off, however this can pose a real problem if your driver does not speak English. It is worth having a map with you so you can communicate your destination to your driver visually. Safety is paramount when traveling in Pakistan, so it is not a good idea to hail a taxi off the street. Where possible, have a concierge or bellboy arrange this for you with a trusted driver.
Many visitors to the city prefer to use a car hire service as it allows them to travel safely and independently. Car hire depots are scattered throughout the city of Lahore, but we advise travellers arriving at the airport to arrange to collect the car from there, and to save having to arrange an airport shuttle service.
Driving a car hire in Lahore can be challenging to say the least. There is a constant flow of traffic which includes motorcycles, rickshaws, pedestrians, bikes, cars and buses. When driving through the city, always be vigilant and be aware that cars rarely stop, even for red lights.
