The airport, which is 40 kilometers north of Bangalore has an excellent network of Airport Shuttles that can take you to the city center.
Train: The main railway station of Bangalore is City Railway Station. From here many trains leave for the rest of India, such as Chennai, Hampi, Goa and Mumbai.
Bus: The main bus station of the city is next to the City Railway Station. From Kempegowda bus station, hundreds of buses depart daily to many destinations in India. Generally, you could purchase a bus ticket online, however, the preference would be to do so at a local travel agent. Usually you will get transportation to the bus station from that place.
Metro: More and more cities and major towns in India are getting a metro network (Namma Metro). Currently, there are two metro lines (green and purple), but there will be some expansions in the coming years. For example, the purple line will take you from City Railway Station to the east or west of the city.
