rickshaw=== After your first harrowing attempt to cross an Ahmedabad street on foot, you will likely conclude that the best way to get around is in the yellow and green three-wheeled noise machines known as the auto-rickshaws or simply rickshaws. Hollering ' auto' or ' rickshaw' at a passing rickshaw should be enough to catch the drivers attention, if you need to--after all, if you don' t look Indian, it is likely that if you step outside you will be followed at all times by at least one rickshaw driver pestering you to take a ride. In most cases, the drivers will be able to understand Hindi and maybe even a few words of English. They are normally quite helpful and are not known to cheat tourists. As always, agree on a fare before getting in.
There are some taxis but you will need to book them in advance or at the airport or railway station. You can also rent a "Qualis", a slang generic term for a SUV-taxi named after the common Toyota Qualis( but now are available as many other bands, such as the Chevy and Mahindra) . Normally, they are offered with a driver, and they will stay with you all day, week, or even month, if you'd like. This chauffeur can normally understand English, and knows the city very well. Most famous ricksaws are of Tushar Riksha Company founded by famous Ricksaw driver Tushar Dave, who owns more than 100 rikshas in Ahmedabad. Tushar rickshaws are famous for their weird look and good service.
===By auto=== Best way to reach all the nook and corner of Ahmedabad is to travel by Auto only. Even though most of the drivers are not able to speak English if you give a clue to them by landmark or destination place they will drop you safely. Comparing with Car' s cost of this will be very cheap and availability of this is also high.
===By bus=== For using the local buses, you will need to know some [[Gujarati phrasebook|Gujarati]], as the routes and numbers are written only in that language. Besides, buses are the most common transport facility for the common people in the city and hence they are overcrowded at times. BRTS is also another mode of transport in Ahmedabad.
