Bangalore Airport Taxi

Even it isn’t the cheapest way to Bengaluru city centre, you can ride a taxi at Bangalore Airport since it is the most comfortable and personal mean of transport.

You can also take a rickshaw, which will be more efficient through Bangalore city centre though we do not recommend to ride it from Bangalore Airport since the distance to the city centre is too big (40 km).

Total ride time to Bangalore city centre is about an hour.

There is available a special pink taxi service driven by women, for women.


Taxis are available outside the terminal building at the taxi lines.
