There are multiple modes of transport available to get around in Noida.
1) Uber/Ola // The most convenient mode of travelling in Noida. You can book Uber pool or Ola share for the lower fare. Uber also has an option of Uber moto to book motorbike as a vehicle.
2) Metro // Although Delhi Metro is connected to Noida, its coverage is not as extensive as it is in Delhi. Noida metro has also become operational from January 2019.
3) Auto Rickshaws (Tuk-Tuk) // This three-wheel vehicle can accommodate up to 3 people and is quite popular for short distance. But make sure to set on a price before riding the auto-rickshaw and haggle a lot to get the lower price if you don’t want to get ripped off.
4) E-Rickshaw .. The electronic battery-driven rickshaw which runs on a fixed route and is shared among 4 people.
Renting a car is not recommended as Noida is a small city and all the places to visit are very close to each other.
