This helps in getting transport to travel around easily. Unique to Kerala's geographic feature, most of the key cities lie almost linearly on North-South axis, which almost are connected by one key Trunk road NH 66 and one key rail route. By train[ edit ] Trains are good for long distance travel within the state. Most trains are long distance trains with stops at many of Kerala's stations.
Majority of trains enter into Kerala from Tamil Nadu on east side and Shornur being the major junction that divides rail line into Northern branch and Southern branch. Trains on Konkan route enters from Northern side of Kerala reach use Shornur to branch either eastward or southward.

The main Intercity trains are: Trivandrum-Mangalore Express which covers almost all major cities of Kerala on its west coast. Trivandrum Guruvayur Intercity- very popular option for regular commuters working between cities.
Trivandrum-Shornur Venad Intercity Express. Express trains are relatively faster, as they stop only at major stations and gets priority in event of crossing.
Passenger trains stops at all stations in a route and can be held-up in event of an express train crossing, thus takes longer time. However latter is good option, if one needs to align at small village or town stations, not catered by express trains.
By road[ edit ] Roads remain the primary popular options. Almost each nook and corner of the state is well connected by road. The NH 66 is one of most busiest as it connects almost all cities of Kerala on West coast, especially connecting three major metros- Kozhikode, Kochi and Trivandrum which runs on North-South Axis.
The NH which connects Kochi to Coimbatore and further to Chennai and Bangalore is equally a very busy commercial route that connects on East-West axis and primary gateway route to Kerala. However NH 66 cut the time at least by 1 hour for a travel between Kochi and Trivandrum as it uses the flat terrain of Alleppey coast on west.
State Highways connect to almost all parts of Kerala and Kerala has the highest density of roads in the country, connecting literarily every single village or part of the state. Most of the roads including NH are however bi-lane, so even narrow roads due to huge settlement on both sides of road and higher population density. Signages are common everywhere, written in both Malayalam and English and sometimes in Hindi also. Roadside boards notifying the place name and speed are are well indicated in most of the highways.
Cars[ edit ] Unless you seek adventure, its not advisable to drive a car.100 Meter Sprint Senior Boys Final - 62nd Kerala State Schools Athletics Meet 2018
Narrow roads with bustling traffic with little driving discipline makes self drive not safe, especially those accustomed to western kind of driving. Most of Kerala highways are two-lane with no medians. Though many are recently upgraded to better standards with proper signages and markings, its equally common to see roads without these. Street lighting in most of highways and roads are non-existent, which makes night drive dangerous for people not accustomed. Most of the bridges and few roads carry toll charges collected at manned toll plazas or checkpoints.
Almost all the toll pass is valid for unlimited travel for a period of 24 hours, though a few bridges allow one time validity. Car rental is not so popular among foreign visitors, particularly among westerners.
Many car rental companies refuse to provide self-drive cars to Westerners. However chauffeured car rentals are available for visitors for daily or weekly or even monthly basis. No security deposit is needed if the car is chauffeur-driven.
There are multiple car rental companies as well as call taxi agencies, operating in most of the towns. Equally in major cities, drivers can rented on daily basis, if you have a car availed from friends. Most hotels with three stars or more provide private cars for their guests at rates slightly higher than elsewhere.
Taxi[ edit ] Its pretty easy to travel across Kerala in tourist taxis. There is no meter system for any taxis in Kerala, while a few cab companies offers cabs with GPS facility.
Equally, there are no cab top signs in these vehicles however, according to state law all vehicles which are available for hire should have yellow number plates. Regular taxis are normally available at designated taxi stands located at places such as railway stations, the airport, boat jetties, major bus stations and in front of important hotels. There is no need to negotiate prices, as most of them follow fixed rates. Regular taxis have tariff cards displayed on the dashboard.

Call taxis have charges fixed by their respective companies although they are normally uniform. It is more common to see such cabs mainly in cities. The standard tariffs are Rs for first 5 km, and Rs 11 per km thereafter. Most of them are GPS enabled and many are monitored through control facilities. Recently the state government introduced women-centric She-Taxis lady taxis in major cities like Kochi, Trivandrum, Kozhikode and aims to cover entire Kerala by mid of The cars are exclusively driven by women and are a comfortable option for lady travelers and families.
SheTaxis are GPS enabled modern fleet of vehicles that is constantly monitored from the control facility. This option is no available for single men and can be hailed only if there is at least one woman traveling. In other cities, lady taxis run by lady co-op societies like Kudumbashree are also getting popular though many are not GPS enabled. The hilly terrains demand 4 wheel drive vehicles as taxis. However normal taxis from other parts do operate to such areas, though in some difficult areas, a change of vehicle might be required.
One can find such trucker stands near the main junction of small towns in the region. The rates are usually higher and you might need to negotiate with the driver beforehand. Many cab companies also offer full or half day services. There is no share-taxi system as such in Kerala, even though car-pooling among employees of same company or locality are getting popular.
However, it is not uncommon to see taxi operators operating on the shared basis if the original hirer gives consent for so. Please be aware, such sharing of taxi is Illegal as per the law and if caught, the driver, owner and all the passengers in the taxi at the time are liable to be punished by fines. However, this is often unenforced and even if caught it usually gets overlooked as the passengers can claim each other as friends.
Riding a motorbike and travelling across state you get the closer look and feel of God's own country with all the smells and sounds added. There are companies which organize packaged tours or tailor made tours for enthusiastic bikers and adventurous travellers for a safer motorbike experience of India with regular promotions mostly through online forums and Facebook.
Purchase of bikes among tourists are not popular, unless one plans to have an extended stay. There are several motorcycle clubs and rental agencies that provide motorbikes on rent even on monthly basis. Off-recently bicycle rentals are gaining much popular in the state.
Sports in Kerala
Cycle safari tours in many cities are increasing to help tourists to get first hand experience. For local city explorations, cycles are a reasonable option, but be aware that there are very few if any reserved cycle paths available and you will need to negotiate unruly traffic. By hitch hiking[ edit ] Unlike other states, hitchhiking is not a very popular option in Kerala, especially for foreign tourists. Since Kerala does not have any deserted long highway, being a continuous stretch of urban areas on sides of any highway, its perfectly possible to get any form of public transport or services like auto-rickshaws.
However, hitch-hiking is possible in hilly terrains and plantation areas where farm vehicles or bikes do stop and help travellers on road. By bus[ edit ] Bus transport is most popular transport to travel within Kerala and ideal for budget conscious travellers. All fares are determined by Transport Department and uniform across the state in accordance to nature of buses.
Typically, there are 6 class of buses Ordinary ORDwhich is a basic, no-frills services with covering short and medium distance areas with stoppages at all legal stops in its authorised route.
