Amritsar to Attari/Wagah Border Prepaid Taxi Fare, Distance and Travel Time

Prepaid Taxi Booth nearby Golden Temple, Amritsar, Punjab, India

It was afternoon hours we were at Golden Temple Road. On the left-hand side, we saw a prepaid taxi booth and thought why not inquire about taxi fares for Attari/Wagah Border though the wish was to visit the next day i.e., Diwali festival day?

Rs. 100 per person – prepaid booth counter person said. If you book today, it is Rs. 100 per person to and fro journey and if you book tomorrow it will be Rs. 120/-. We book two seats in advance. Rs. 200/- paid. We were told to visit the next day at 2:00 pm.

The next day at 2:00 pm we reached the same location and showed the pre-paid receipt. After a few minutes, there were a few more guys. They were also joining for the Attari/Wagah Border visit via the same taxi. In total there were 10 tourists if I am correct and the taxi driver. We had a little walk to reach a taxi stand and then within the taxi – a jeep. The journey started at 2:30 pm and reached Wagah Border at 3:45 pm approx. 600 meters before Attari/Wagah Border. The taxi was parked by the driver and we walk towards Attari/Wagah Border. It was a nice 32 km journey as per the display board but the driver said – a 35 km journey. Very useful prepaid taxi service. After Attari/Wagah Border Ceremony we re-started the journey and by 6:30 pm we were back nearby Golden Temple, Amritsar.

The prepaid booth is open for 24 hours – said the counter person.

Then one day I thought to inquire: Is there any bus for Attari/Wagah Border from Amritsar Bus Stand?

Yes, said the conductor standing at Shaheed Madan Lal Dhingra Interstate Bus Terminal nearby Sangam cinema. Fare – Rs. 30/-per person one-way journey.

But I am still not that sure about the bus because I haven’t seen any bus nearby Attari/Wagah Border but still will try a bus journey one day.
