If you were promised a pick-up, spend up to five minutes to see someone standing there at the airport just when you come out of it, with a placard bearing your name.
Here is how to reach your accommodation from the airport:
Look for a sign saying "Airport Taxi". Walk in that direction. They have taxi ranks which operate pretty well.
1. If your accommodation is on campus or at the Krishinton Hotel, tell the taxi that you want to go to "Tata Institute". That is how the institute is known in the city after the legendary industrialist J N Tata who was instrumental in founding the institute. It is about 35 kms and there are some repairs going on along the road. It will not take more than an hour or so. In case the taxi does not know Tata Institute, tell him Ramaiah Hospital. He would surely know the hospital. There is a gate of the institute very close to the main gate of the hospital. There is a Pizza Hut almost opposite this institute gate. Come in through this gate and tell the security that you have an accommodation booked for you at the
A. JNC guest house which is close to Director's bungalow. Ask him how to go to Dirctor's bungalow.
B. Main Guest House which is also next to the Director's bungalow.
C. CVH which is at stone's throw from the gate.
D. Jawahar Visitor's House which is the farthest from this gate. The way to there is by exiting from the campus by D Gate and then again entering the Gymkhana campus. It is complicated and hence please see the map beforehand.
E. The Krishinton Hotel for which exit the campus by the D Gate, turn left and it is there on the right after a church.
2. If your accommodation is at the Greenpath Hotel, tell the taxi that you want to go to The Greenpath Hotel on New BEL Road. It is about 35 kms and there are some repairs going on along the road. It will not take more than an hour or so. The taxi may not have heard of Greenpath hotel! In that case, mention Ramaiah Hospital. The hotel is pretty close to that hospital which is well known. Keep the phone number of the hotel handy so that you can tell the taxi driver to talk to the hotel reception from his mobile phone.
