how hard should it be to get to an airport? well, from koramangala, the new bengaluru international airport takes a mere two hours to get to. and that too at 7 am in the morning! god help those leaving at 4pm.
the best way to get there is by the shuttle bus operated by the bmtc. the info on the routes is sketchy at best. the best available info is tucked away in two pages – bmtc and bial. the phone numbers for info listed on the airport site never answer the calls.
while figuring out how to get my dad to the airport, i was left wondering how the hell would i find out exactly where the bus stops in koramangala. all i knew from the above links was that it would pass via the forum mall. so me and dad camped out in front of the forum mall (dairy circle side) until we saw the bus pass by – you can tell with the well-lit inside of the bus and many dangling yellow holds for standing passengers. we then chased the bus to it’s destination/starting point in koramangala.
