    Flight from Bangalore to Mumbai

    by Avieira67 Updated Apr 14, 2016

    A companhia aérea de baixo custo Spicejet liga Bangalore a Bombaim. O voo dura cerca de 1 h 45 minutos.
    Viajei com esta companhia e achei o serviço bom, apesar de ter havido um atraso de 30 minutos. Chovia torrencialmente e alguns voos foram cancelados.

    The low cost airline Spicejet links Bangalore to Mumbai. The flight takes about 1 h 45 minutes.
    I have travelled with this airline and have found a good service, in spite of having a delay of 30 minutes. It was raining a lot and some flights were canceled.

    Bangalore Metro

    by GrumpyDiver Updated Feb 7, 2016

    Bangalore has a shiny new Metro, but it is far from being completed, so it may not be the best way to get around. Typical of Indian subways, you have the x-ray and frisking to enter.

    Be forewarned. They don't like cameras and I had to log in my including my name and phone number. With typical Indian logic, no one seems to care about people taking pictures with either tablets or mobile phones, just cameras. Go figure...

    As of January 2016, the six easternmost an six westernmost stations of the Purple Line are in operating, The middle six stations are scheduled to come on line in February 2016, completing the Purple Line.

  • Cab and Taxi Rental

    by collagen Updated Apr 29, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are no on-road taxi concept in Bangalore and one has to pre-book by calling city taxis. It makes more sense to go for 4 hours or 8hours packages instead of point to point cabs, if you like fexibility in your travel. There are tons of places just outside Bangalore and hiring a cab (chauffeur driven) is one of the easier ways to travel to these places. Cabs can be booked by calling services like justdial (08069999999) or online through websites like http://www.yourcabs.com.

    Trains

    by Doggins Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I didn't actually get a chance to try the trains in India, but from what I've read and heard, they are the best option for long journeys (eg to go outside of Bangalore)

    Another thing I've heard is to get a sleeper carriage if possible

    You can use this website to book your journey online! - http://www.irctc.co.in/

    Bengaluru International Airport

    by bladedragon Updated Jan 15, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This Airport is quite modern in India.
    There are some cafes and restaurant inside the airport.
    The airport is about 30km from Bangalore and it took me about 45 minutes to an hour during non peak hour.

    Note:
    Please note that the guard will not let you in to the airport more than 2 hours before your flight.
    There are some restaurants outside the airport like subway though.

  • Use government bus depot

    by charlie789999 Written Aug 17, 2010

    You can reach Banglore city by train, or bus. If you are traveling by train get down at Banglore city junction or if you are traveling by Bus, get down at Majestic.

    Try to Stay Near MAJESTIC. They are lot's hotels available at Majestic.

    http://yellowpages.sulekha.com/bangalore/travel-transportation/accommodation/budget-hotels/bangalore-city/suraksha-park.htm

    Use Banglore Government bus for roaming in the city.In Majestic you will find a railway station and two bus depot.They have their Banglore city Junction (Railway station for long way train or trains from different states), Bus depot (Buses to go in different states or for longway travel)and another Bus depot (Buses to travel in city) at Majestic.

    From Majestic You will get bus to any corner of the city and viseversa.

    At majestic you will find control room where you can ask for bus number to go for any part of the city, there is also a bigmap attached to wall at local bus depot at Majestic to find the bus routes.I think you can buy map there, I carried a printout with me.

    If your staying at different place other big bus stands:
    BTS, imp jun of major routes near lalbag
    Jayanagar, soutj
    Banashankari, South west
    BTM south east
    Vijaynagar, west
    malleswaram,North west
    Yeshawantpur, Far north west
    Domlur, East

    AUTORIKSHA: I had traved only once but they are fair enough.thats my opinion different from others. Before traveling by riksha you should know how far that place is and then talk with riksha driver and fix fare before you sit in Riksha. Even if he says I will go with meter ask him for rough idea about fare. But best way is to fix the rate in advance.

    While coming back you can get train ticket at banglore city junction railway station, Goverment bus ticket at bus depot(whre you get buses for different state).Or there are plenty of traveling agents available, where you can get the ticket to your home.

    Biggest problem is language,as everyone speaks Kannadi. Bus conductor or auto riksha person can talk in Hindi or English.

    Cheers!
    Bye

    For some reason or other I have always had good luck with taxi drivers all around the world.. BA to Siem Reap.. I had to get to the New International airport to catch my flight to Paris. someone had suggested the new bus that plies the route, but with a heavy suitcase full of goodies for my cuban friends, i chose to go by taxi...and I met Prakash the owner driver of a Tata Indica taxi..
    A canarese from shimoga, this young man was chattty and extremely friendly and we had fixed the one way fare at 600 inr. i thought of asking him various fares, and i was amazed how reasonable they were
    8 hours /80 km around town of bangalore 950 inr
    if you are going out of town 6 inr/km
    he then suggested a karnataka itinerary, giving me the names of various towns and the distances between them.
    also to ooty if you like or calicut...
    add 250 inr per day for the driver. dont forget if you cross the border you have to pay the taxi permit of that state, 1000 inr for tamin nadou and andhra pradesh and 500 inr for kerala
    I certainly plan to use him on my next visit to bangalore, as i always wanted to go to ooty.. so it would be a two day trip .. can seat up to four people, but three would be more comfortable.. the total taxi fare would be aroud 5000 inr.. not bad at all prakash may be contacted at 0961188498 if you are calling from outside the country please add the country code

    On a recent trip to Bangalore, with my family, we worked with a Car rental company to travel to Puttaparthy to visit Shri Sathya Sai Baba´s ashram. We hired a very comfortable toyota Innova for 900 Rupees one full day for the vehicle with the driver included. If these details help, the name of the company is Shiva Car Rentals and their telephone numbers are 41262306 or 41150735. These numbers are of Bangalore hence you will have to dial the area codes. I have a person who was handling all my travel in this are, just in case you need some help, his name is Ashok and his cell phone number is 9886045236.

  • Buses

    by krishsubbu Updated Jul 16, 2009

    In the last 1 1/2 years the local government has introduced a fleet of air-conditioned buses running through out the city to cater to a slightly different section of the public.

    These are of international standard and very effecient, for most part stick to schedules (unless caught in a traffic jam) and very convenient.

    The pricing is very attractive and it could be between .5 USD upwards to a max of 5 USD if you are taking the bus from the city to the airport.

    They are all very easy to spot - all of them are Red in color and in the last two weeks an Orange version has been introduced.

    Autos

    by abi_maha Written Feb 2, 2009

    NExt to the volvo buses is the conveniences of hiring an auto, repaid counters are available at the city railway station, MG road and at Forum in Koramangala. Take these to avoid getting cheated by the auto drivers. Even otherwise the drivers have to put on the meter when you start the journey, it entails a minimum fare of rs 14 for a distance of 2kms and Rs 7 per km henceforth. Do not encourage them to ask for a fixed rate and check distances before you boards from one place to the other on google maps if possible to avoid getting cheated or bein taken to your destination thru a circuitous route!

    Arrange for your transpo

    by donnatravel Written Jun 14, 2008

    It's pretty hard to get around Bangalore without a car as there are very few taxis. In fact, I cant remember seeing any. The most available mode of transportation is rickshaw (a 3-wheeled motorcycle vehicle). Better to arrange pick-up and drop off with the hotel taxis when going around the city.

  • Internal flights- Kingfisher is King!

    by Stubbins Written May 8, 2008

    Kingfisher have new planes, happy staff, and porters who whisk you & your luggage to check in - even for economy class. All the staff I have met from Delhi> Mumbai and then later Mumbai> Bangalore have been great. And the food was good too. There were seatback TVs and comfortable seats. My only gripe is that if the guy in front settles back to sleep you can have a computer on the table. Highly recommeded. Try it and you'll fly Kingfisher again!

    I have been in Bangalore since past 7 years. Back then my mode of transportation used to be Bus. And sometimes auto. Bangalore has good bus connectvity. But those are limited to main roads. To get into interior either you have to wait long time for bus or hire auto. Hiring auto is a pain. Auto drivers would either refuse to ply or charge high. Fed up with the transportation situation I bought a motorcycle. Since then I have peace of mind when commuting in Bangalore. My suggestion would be to rent a motorcycle in Bangalore. There are many places where you can rent a motorcycle. In fact my friend and I started a motorcycle rental company. You can book motorcycles and scooter from our website www.roadpanda.com
