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

Prepaid Taxi Booth nearby Golden Temple, Amritsar

It was afternoon hours we were at Golden Temple Road. On the left-hand side, we saw a prepaid taxi booth and a thought why not inquire taxi fare for Wagah Border though the wish was to visit 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 next day at 2:00 pm.

Next day at 2:00 pm we reached the same location and showed the pre-paid receipt. After few minutes there were few more guys. They were also joining for Wagah Border visit via the same taxi. 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 taxi – a jeep. The journey started at 2:30 pm reached Wagah Border at 3:45 pm approx. 600 meters before Wagah Border. The taxi was parked by the driver and we walk towards Wagah Border. It was a nice 32 km journey as per display board but driver said – 35 km journey. Very useful prepaid taxi service. After 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 only day I thought to inquire: Is there any bus for 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 Wagah Border but still will try bus journey one day.
