Need to travel from Amritsar to Chandigarh. Sounds like there are not many direct trains and all the best trains require change in Ambala.

Few questions:

1. Best option to travel from Ambala to Chandigarh? Only looking for a train or Taxi.
2. Is Taxi an option? are they good? reliable? Can I book in advance so that they are there waiting when we reach Ambala?
3. Any other options to go from Amritsar to Chandigarh direct?

Thanks in Advance.

There are buses available (including Volvo) between Amritsar and Chandigarh. You may opt for it

Train number 12242 is direct from Amritsar to Chandigarh each day, departing 05.15am, and Train 12412 again is daily, and departs Amritsar at 17.30 pm.
These have "chair car" reserved seating.

Not the "best trains" but a fuss free option. Trip time is scheduled at 4-4.5 hours...

Ambala to Chandigarh is about 60km, and I imagine there would be many taxi's available at Ambala... Go to the pre-pay taxi booth at the station, to at least pay a reasonable fare! You should expect to pay some extra as the taxi would expect to return empty from such a far distant place...

On pre paid taxis you will not be required to pay any amount extra. The charges include everything.
