There are now flights to Vijayawada from Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore. Vijayawada is less than a one and half hour bus ride away.

Parking in the town is improving. It may be easy to park two wheelers, but finding parking for cars is a bit harder. Generally parking is provided by the town government as well as the business owners.

Buses are available on all major roads. Otherwise, you can get around by taxi, personal car, auto-rickshaw or on foot. Alternatively, motorbiking/bicycle motorbiking or cycling in downtown and busy areas can often be quicker than taking the auto-rickshaw or a taxi.
