How To Reach New delhi
Surface - Buses arrive into New Delhi from virtually every city in India. Admittedly not a very comfortable option, buses are the only choice for some destinations, especially those in the mountains. Delhi has a slew of inter-state bus terminals (ISBT). The Delhi Transport Corporation is the major operator, but every state also runs its own buses and there are some private operators too.
â Kashmere Gate ISBT (aka Maharana Pratap), Metro: Kashmere Gate. This is "the" ISBT and the largest of the lot. Buses to points north, including Nepal.
â Sarai Kale Khan ISBT (aka Vir Hakikat Rai), next to Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station. Buses to points south.
â Anand Vihar ISBT (aka Swami Vivekanand), on the east bank of Yamuna. Buses to points east.
Train - Trains to the city arrive at one of three main stations: Delhi Junction, also called Old Delhi or Purani Dilli, the second at New Delhi which lies in Central Delhi, and one at Hazrat Nizamuddin a few kilometers to the south. Delhi Junction and New Delhi Railway Station are now connected by Metro Line 2, and are not just a few minutes ride apart. Getting to the airport from any of the three stations may take between 40 minutes to an hour if traveling by car, depending on the traffic situation. There is always a great rush on the railways, so it is advisable to book your tickets in advance. Though a ticket office near the New Delhi station is open to all, it is easier to book online through the Indian Railways booking website.
Air - Indira Gandhi International Airport is the arrival point for a lot of visitors into Delhi. Most terminals have basic facilities like money changing and restaurants, but overcrowding still remains a major problem during the peak hours (middle of the night for international flights and early morning for domestic), at such times it can be hard to find even a place to sit. The airport is undergoing a major repair, to be ready in time for the 2010 Commonwealth Games in the city. Despite the continuing work, passengers are helped along with prominent signs and staff support. The airport is split into four terminals, with the domestic terminals 1A, 1C and 1D commonly known as Palam Airport.
â Terminal 1A (Domestic): Air India flights with IC numbers (flights formerly operated by Indian) and GoAir.
â Terminal 1D (Domestic): All other domestic flights (except Indian, Kingfisher and GoAir).
â Terminal 2 (International): All international flights and Air India domestic flights with AI numbers.
