Getting Around Bangalore

Commuting is simple and a pleasant experience

The local city bus is a great way to reach your destination within Bangalore. A word of advise, pick up one of the route maps of the bus network from the Main Bus Terminal at the Majestic Bus Stand. These maps would come in handy since, only the bus numbers are written in English. The destination information and the route are written in Kanada. AC Volvo buses are also available on select routes. The three main bus stands in Bangalore are the Majestic Bus Stand, City Market and Shivajinagar one.

Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation also runs half day and full day city tour buses.

Autorickshaws are another popular mode of transportation. These vehicles are great for getting to your destination fast. Autos in the city add a surcharge of 50% after 10 PM.

If in the city then a Maruti Omni or a Tata Indica car would be a common site. These comfortable cars operate as taxis in Bangalore. Tourist Taxis are easily available from travel agencies, hotels, and taxi stands and can be called in advance. Although a far more expensive option than traveling by bus or an autorickshaw, it is a very safe option.
