Delhi to Agra by train or car

Any recommendations as to whether we should take the Shatabdi Express or hire a private car from Delhi to Agra (and back again the same day)? How much would a private car cost us? This would be the only time we would ride a train while in India. Thanks in advance!

I will suggest to go by CAR. Northern Rail (NR) is no reliable , recently faced issue that for 2 ticket/PNR they assigned same Set of seat. When sent email to CCR , AGM , GM etc of NR they never replied even after 16 reminder.( Not sure NR railways authority know, how to check EMAIL :-) ).

So better go by CAR. Private car usually cost 6-10/KM depend on AC or non-AC

The Shatabdi or Taj express is the way to go!
