Bangalore Airport Facility | Airport Transfer | How to reach IISc

How to reach IISc (Indian Institute of Science Bangalore) from the Airport/ Rainway Station.

IISc is about 35kms from the airport. One could take either a prepaid taxi (currently, costs Rs. 750, and the counter is available near the exit of the Airport Building), or a city taxi (costs about Rs. 500, and a queue for the same is just outside the airport building).

The Institute is known as "Tata Institute" to the locals and is just past Mekhri circle and on the way to Yeshwantpura (one must take a right turn at Mekhri circle). Shuttle bus service, operated by Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC), runs from the airport to various areas in Bangalore city every 15 minutes. Details of the schedule can be found here. Additional information on the airport can also be found at its official website: (http://www.bengaluruairport.com/)

The city railway station is about 7 kms from IISc campus. One will have to get out of the station from platform number ONE and reach the prepaid taxi stand and hire a city taxi (costs about Rs 150). Majestic  (7kms from IISc) is the central Bus stand in Bangalore which is just opposite to the City Railway station. If one happens to reach Majestic, Bangalore by bus, reach platform number 22 from where almost all buses come to the Institute.

The IISc Guest House is located at the far end of the campus. The distance from The Chancery Pavillion (Conference Venue) to the IISc Faculty Guest House is approximately 20 KM. By taxi or auto rickshaw it would take around 1 hour 30 minutes on a normal day. Buses will take around 2 hours or more.

The distance from the other listed hotels to the conference venue are mentioned against each of the hotels. Please visit http://comsnets.org/hotel_accomodation.html for more information.
