Madhapur is served by MMTS train service, the station is HiTech Station, which is a kilometer away. Taxis and autos shuttle between the station and the city. Hyderabad Metro Rail, which is under construction, would make transportation easier and a lot better.

Inner and outer ring roads are being developed to ease traffic during peak hours, and also to provide connectivity to the new Hyderabad International Airport near Shamshabad.

The electrical supplies in the area are unable to keep up with the rapid development and so the utilities have asked IT firms to operate on generators for two hours each day.[1]
