Way to IISc, JN Tata Auditorium !!

JN Tata Auditorium, Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, India.

How to reach Indian Institute of Science?

Bangalore is connected by air, rail and road to all the metropolises and most major cities of the country. Also, one can fly direct to Bangalore from several international airports.

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.

If one plans to take a bus into town, one will have to move past Malleswaram 18th cross bus stand towards Yeshwantpura in order to reach IISc (also popularly called Tata Institute). There is also a bus stop on the highway between the yellow over bridge and Prof. CNR Rao circle, and another one at Prof. CNR Rao circle (on Sir CV Raman Road ). Finally there is a bus stop at Yeshwantpura tollgate, just off campus near R block. Most buses go to one of these places.

    • From Mekhri Circle

  • By City TaxiThese are a very convenient and comfortable option, but city taxies are slightly more expensive. These taxis are Maruti Omni Vans. Other than that, they are quite fast.
    The fares are not that huge. It could cost you Rs. 50 for travelling from the Bangalore Bus Stand ( Majestic ) to J N Tata Auditorium.
    The actual rates are Rs 35 for 4 km ( kilometers ) (minimum) and Rs 9 for every extra kilometer.

  • By Auto Rickshaw (Three Wheeler)These are 3 wheelers and will bring you from anywhere to J N Tata Auditorium.
    They are pretty cheap. For a ride from Bangalore Bus Stand ( Majestic / Railway Station ) the fare should be about Rs. 30.
    If you are new to India, you may want to know how to hire one of these three wheelers.
    When you see an auto, just wave to the driver and he should stop.
    Never ask the driver whether he would kindly take you to the destination - all Bangaloreans know that this is asking for trouble!
    Sit in the auto rikshaw, make yourself comfortable, then (without batting an eyelid) say "TATA Institute or IISc (Indian Institute of Science), J.N.Tata Hall", then look nonchalantly out of the door on your left, having done your duty of telling him where you want to go.

    BEWARE!! : Please ensure that the driver puts the fare-meter flag down, and that you pay the fares ONLY according to the auto meter. There are no conversion charts applicable!
