After long, cheap flights to Hyderabad, sit back and relax as one of the airport-run air-conditioned buses takes you into the city. A more expensive option would be the air-conditioned taxis waiting right outside the terminal building. Within the city there are plenty of buses and auto rickshaws available to catch after your Hyderabad flights. The buses are the cheapest form of transportation but they can get extremely crowded and it is likely that you will have to stand the whole time. Auto rickshaws are more comfortable on the other hand, but the drivers are notorious for ignoring the metered fare and charging extra. If you want to change it up, there are always air-conditioned taxis just a cell phone call away.
