Metro Rail is now a must for the city and project has been taken up by the government. City Bus about 162 in numbers, are being operated by State owned UP State Road Transport Corporation. However, keeping in view the growing population, the buses plying in the city are not enough. These buses charge  little amount of fare and are affordable.
 
Auto-rickshaws are now the most preferred and convenient mode of transport. They are cheaper as they operate on share basis with 3 and sometimes 5 occupying the auto. These auto-rickshaws ply on almost all the roads of the city and can be hired for any destination. Please note Autos do not have meters and they have a list of fares which is updated by the Administration. In addition, Tempos are also plying on many routes of the city. Previously it has been the only mode of conveyance in Lucknow. Tempos are also hired on shared basis. Overloading, rash driving, wrong side parking and arguments over fare by Autos/Tempos, are found rare and people are in general polite. Recently,  Radio cabs -Call up Taxi, has been introduced and it is now plying in the city. Radio Cab  though less in number is now a good Call Taxi Service in Lucknow.
