Connectivity:
The Khadki Bus-Stand in Khadki Bazaar is very well connected to PCMC and Pune Station. On the highway, a number of state and city buses along with six-seaters and autos ply up and down.


Commuting from areas like Ammunition Factory in Khadki, one wouldn't find many autorickshaws here. Aundh again till the areas of Parihar Chowk and university is very well connected.
