Chitradurga lies on NH4 and as well as NH13 and is well connected by road. Buses travelling from Bangalore towards Mumbai, Pune, Belgaum, Hubli, Davangere, Hospet would touch Chitradurga.
Chitradurga Town itself has a railway station, but it does not lie on any main line. It would be a good idea to get down at Davangere and then travel by Road to reach Chitradurga, this is faster. Davangere is well connected by trains running between Bangalore and Mumbai (via Hubli), Bangalore - Goa, Bangalore - Hubli, etc.,
Nearest Airport is at Bangalore International Airport, also, if the Bellary, Shimoga and Hubli Airports are developed, all seem to be located at the same distance more or less.
