Relief for passengers: Three more bus services to Bengaluru airport soon

To cut down on the problems faced by people in reaching Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport, the Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) is planning to launch three more bus services connecting different areas of the city to the airport.

Named ‘Vayu Vajra’, the buses will connect ITPL to the airport via Budigere Cross; Shivaji Nagar/MG Road to Kempegowda airport via Hennur Road; and Bannerghatta Road (Gottigere), the New Indian Express reported. The launch dates have not yet been fixed, but the buses are expected to ply 30-40 times a day, a senior BMTC official told TNIE.

Kempegowda International Airport is located north of the city and due to the congested roads, it can take people a few hours to get there. The state has taken several steps in the past to reduce travel time.

A luxury bus service was started in 2008 to take passengers to the airport. In September 2017, the state Cabinet approved an infrastructure project proposing 4 new corridors connecting different parts of the city to the airport.
