    Getting back from Agra to Delhi

    Can somebody suggest me the best way to travel from Agra to Delhi. We have to travel back from Agra to Delhi on Sunday night so that we can catch afternoon flight to Goa.

    What are the travel options available from Agra to Delhi, do we have regular from Agra to Delhi trains at night and can we book tickets on same day.
    What are the other options available like bus or taxi service. I am really not in favor of hiring a taxi but if there is no other comfortable option then can consider taxi too.

    Thanks a million
    A

    Hi Aussie

    There are total 34 trains from Agra to Delhi and as you said that you want to start from Agra in evening or night so during those hours there are about 10-12 trains which you can book in advance (IMO: its good to book your ticket in advance). According to me the best trains to travel from Agra to Delhi are:

    Train Number Name Departure from Agra Arrival in Delhi Fare
    12279 Taj Express 18:55 22:00 263
    12001 NDLS Shatabdi 20:30 22:30 400


    If you want to travel by bus then you can get one after every 30-40 minutes, but here I would suggest you not to travel in Non AC bus of UP Transport as these buses are old and not comfortable at all. You can check some AC Volvo coach which will cost you around Rs.450 to 500

    As you said even I will not advice you to travel by taxi as it would be much more expensive and less comfortable (compared to above mentioned trains). Total distance from Agra to Delhi is 220km which will cost you around Rs. 5000 for the trip.

    Thanks Leo, much appreciated. I am sure I will book this NDLS Shatabdi to travel back as its less time consuming and leaves at 8:30PM.

    In any case you have to book the train by IRCTC or have to go to Railway Station (Railway Reservation Center), timings are correct upto best of my knowledge and I have traveled in the above trains
