The Agra Fort is located just 2.5 km away from the opulent Taj Mahal hence it is a very good idea to combine these two destinations together. The nearest railway station to the Red Fort of Agra is, of course, Agra Cantonment or Agra Cantt. as it is more commonly known as. If you are a first-time traveller to Agra, get down at the station and make your way to the prepaid booth in order to book a transport - Cab or Rickshaw - at a reasonable price. The taxi fare is usually between INR 200 - 300 as the distance between the station and the fort is around 13 km.
