How to get from Bangalore to Mysore

And the other way round!

please remember it always takes longer than you expect and things are differently organised in India.

It can take up to four hours travel time from the airport to Mysore Bed and Breakfast, so be prepared.

Our preference if we just want to get there is a taxi, if it’s for enjoyment, then we catch the train.

Travel from Bangalore.

There are the following options

Taxi pick up and drop. We can arrange a taxi to pick you up, at a competitive price, (starting at 2800 Rs depending on vehicle). Just email Stephen with flight details or where you’d like to be picked up if you’d like to do this.

Flybus direct from the airport to Mysore. Limited times. Check the web for details or to book

Bus (a total of  3), catch the regular bus from the airport to Bangalore centre then bus (shuttle) or auto rickshaw/taxi to satellite bus stand followed by bus to Mysore. Regular times.

Bus to Bangalore centre from the Airport then train.

Train tickets can be bought in advance or within an hour of the journey from the kiosk on the relevant platform (was No. 9) . Journey can take as short as two hours (shatabdi express) or over three hours depending upon the train. Check time on net with make my trip, clear trip or the rail service.

The flights between Bangalore and Mysore airports are, I believe, currently suspended. They are likely to be reintroduced in September 2017 but who knows how long they will last.

All methods are manageable within half a day, the journey takes 3-4 hours plus.

Please note there are pre pay auto rickshaw stands in Mysore at the railway station and bus stand. 

Ask Stephen to email details of how to find Mysore Bed and Breakfast.

Travel to Bangalore or Bangalore Airport  from Mysore Bed and Breakfast 

There are the following options:

Taxi. Vasanth can arrange a taxi, at a competitive price.

The train is probably my favourite (although I mostly use a taxi to and from the airport). The shatabdi has AC chair and is among the quickest. I like standing in the open doorway!

Bus (x2) from Mysore to Bangalore satellite bus stand centre then bus (shuttle) or auto rickshaw/taxi to main bus stand. Regular times. To get to Bangalore Airport requires catching a third shuttle bus from Bangalore centre.

If you really want to bus it, the only really efficient way is on the Fly bus direct from Mysore to the airport. Limited times. Check the web for details of timings or to book

There are currently no flights between Mysore and Bangalore airports. They are threatening to reintroduce them in September 2017 but who knows how long that will last.

All methods are manageable within half a day, the journey takes 3-4 hours plus.
