Nellore belongs to the category of one of the most developed cities in Andhra Pradesh. So the local transport is pretty advanced and it's easier to travel to your places of interest from your hotel. You can make use of local buses managed by the municipal corporation. However, it is suggested to avoid using buses during peak office hours as it is obvious that you will find buses very crowded. Another option is to avail of the local auto-rickshaw service. They are available almost 24*7. But fix the price before you get into one of those. Tourists generally prefer booking a private cab for a day or two and enjoy visiting all places of interest without worrying about transportation. Again, it is suggested to bargain to strike a good deal as they generally demand more. So choose your options wisely.
