From taxi stands at both bus stands you can hire taxis to Dehra Dun , Rishikesh or jeeps to Uttarkashi . A shared taxi to Dehra Dun should cost Rs 100/- per person.
Frequent buses leave from the Mussoorie bus stand (next to the train station) in Dehra Dun for Mussoorie (Rs 28, 1½ hours). Some go to the Picture Palace bus stand (2632259) while others go to the Library bus stand (263 2258) at the other end of town. The return trip takes an hour. There are no direct buses to Rishikesh or Haridwar – you’ll need to change at Dehra Dun.
It’s possible to take the ‘back roads’ north into the Himalaya from Mussoorie. Enquire at the Library bus stand about buses to Yamunotri (Rs 174, six hours) which are irregular, or to Sankri for the Har ki Dun trek (Rs 120, seven hours), which may require a combination of buses and share jeeps. Local buses, such as those to Tehri Dam, leave from the Tehri bus stand on the way to Landour.
The Northern Railway booking agency (2632846; the Mall, Kulri Bazaar; 8-11am & noon-3pm Mon-Sat, 8am-2pm Sun) sells tickets for trains from Haridwar.
