Getting around

Quetta’s centre is relatively easy to cover on foot. Buses run from the main bus stand to the train station and then up Zarghoon Rd. They then proceed south down Jinnah Rd before returning to the bus stand. Away from these roads the most expedient way to get around is by autorickshaw. Agree a fare before jumping in – you shouldn’t pay more than about Rs 25 for autorickshaw travel anywhere in the immediate town area.

There’s no airport bus. A taxi from the airport to Jinnah Rd costs around Rs 250 (15 minutes), or Rs 100 by rickshaw.

There are taxi stands on Circular Rd and at Liaquat Park. Hiring a taxi for a half/full day should cost about Rs 600/1200, including waiting time.
