Traffic in Delhi can get very chaotic, especially during school and office hours. A better option than renting a car is to use the Delhi metro, which connects all major attractions, activities and shopping belts of Delhi.

The metro is easy to figure out, and single-use tokens are available at all stations. It is a great way to understand the lifestyle of your fellow passengers, who always have stories and conversation to offer on-board. The women's compartments (denoted by signs at each station) are a convenient way for female travellers to avoid the rush-hour crowd in the general compartment. Auto rickshaws are available outside most metro stations for shorter distances, and it's best to negotiate a price or ask the driver to go by the meter.
