Local tips and information 

If needing transport from the airport to the city centre, consider taking a taxi for about Rs 300 - 400 or an auto for around Rs 150 - 200. For both forms of transportation, you'll have to negotiate the fare in advance. There is also a bus operated by AMTS. Taxis are rare in Ahmedabad. The main mode of transport is bus or auto. Negotiate the fare in advance for autos, with a starting rate of about Rs 20, then Rs 15 for every 1 km and 25% extra between 11 pm - 6 am. For the bus  (AMTS+BRTS), the minimum fares run around Rs 4, with the maximum fare being around Rs 36 one-way, depending on the route. Buy a day pass for about Rs 45. BRTS buses are much faster than AMTS and fares are a bit higher. There is no bus service between 11 pm and 6 am.

When searching for accommodation, you can usually find a cheap hostel for Rs 700 (East of Sabarmati in Old Town). A mid-range hotel will cost Rs 1,700 and luxury accommodation tends to run around Rs 3,400. Look near Navrangpura for more upmarket hotels.
