Transportation in Goa is mainly taken care of by Kadamba Transport Corporation. This government-run agency operates many buses interconnecting the different places in Goa especially along the Panjim-Margao route. A few of these buses also ply to some of the remote areas in the city as well. Many of the buses connecting Goa to other cities in the country also have stops at the various places of interest in Goa. So people can also make use of such buses to get around the city.
The residents of Goa are heavily dependent on taxis to get around the city. A large number of unmetered taxis and autorickshaws ply through the city, enabling people to get around Goa with ease. But the most favoured form of taxi is the ‘pilot’ or motorcycle taxi. Such taxis transport a single pillion rider at a negotiated price. This is the cheapest mode of transportation in Goa.
There are many private agencies that provide cars and motorcycles on rent for tourists, in Goa. Chauffeur-driven cars are also available, with the experienced drivers also doubling as tourist guides. Almost all of these companies have an online presence, so finding out further details is child’s play.
Metro services are not available in Goa.
Goa has two major railway stations, at Margao and Vasco da Gama. The city also has a number of smaller stations, interconnecting the various parts of Goa. Most of the trains coming from different parts of India have quick stops, at many of these stations.
The best way to imbibe the spirit of Goa is by going on a walking tour of the city. It is not possible to cover every place of interest on foot but a small locality can be explored in detail. Trekking tours to beautiful valleys interspersed with streams and waterfalls are also available.
