- Only a few trains stop at Agra station. You will have more options if you take a train to Mathura Junction which is 40 kms from Agra
- The train journey can take anywhere between 14 to 20 hours depending on which train you take
- Train no. 12953 August Kranti Rajdhani Express is the fastest and most comfortable train to take between Mumbai and Mathura to reach Agra. This train also has tickets under the ‘foreign tourist quota’, so the chance of getting a last-minute ticket is higher.

- Flight is the fastest way to reach Agra. The option that is most easily available are frequent flights from Mumbai to Delhi, followed by a 3-4 hours drive to Agra.
- During tourist season i.e. October to March at times there are direct Air India flights from Mumbai to Agra. The flight schedule keeps changing and is not operational every day. A very convenient option when possible.

- There is no bus service between Mumbai and Agra. A roundabout option is taking a bus to Udaipur, touring Rajasthan, and then eventually reaching Agra. Here are a few common routes across Rajasthan which include some of the most visited cities in North India.
