    How to reach DBG

    The colloquial name for the Indian Institute of Science is ‘Tata Institute’: in fact, taxi, auto drivers, and bus conductors are more familiar with the latter and will be able to better direct those coming to the institute.

    From the Airport :Tata Institute (IISc) is about 30 km from the Kempegowda

    International Airport, Bengaluru : (serving both domestic and international air travel). Prepaid taxis and airport shuttle service are available at the airport to all parts of the city.

    From the Railway station : Bangalore is connected to all major Indian cities by rail. Several superfast trains such as Shatabdi, Brindavan, Lalbagh express connect Bangalore to Chennai. The City railway station is the main terminal in Bangalore. If you are traveling by train, you should get off at the City railway station, which is about 7 km from the IISc campus. You will have to get out of the station from platform number ONE and reach the prepaid auto stand and hire a city taxi or prepaid auto-rickshaw.

    From the Cantonment Railway Station : Another major railway station in Bangalore is the Cantonment railway station, also known as Bangalore Cantt. The distance from this station to IISc is almost same as the Bangalore city railway station and it also has prepaid auto-rickshaw facility. You can also use the bus services from the bus stop just opposite to the station. Route Nos. 94 A and E, 252 A, 270 A, 272, 276 A.

    From the Bus Terminal : The Main bus terminal in the city is opposite the City railway station. This bus terminal, commonly known as Majestic, is about 7 km from IISc. If you happen to reach Majestic, Bangalore, reach platform number 22 from where almost all buses come to the Institute (bus route nos. 252 E, 258 C, 271 E, 273 C, 275, 276, 98B,99 A and B) One can choose a City taxi or an auto-rickshaw for nearly the same cost. Travel by auto-rickshaws between 10:00 p.m. and 06:00 a.m. will cost 50% more.
