The Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation forms an important medium of transport in the city. It connects the whole town through various routes making travel simple. The ticket fares are around INR 15 for a distance of 7 km. There are also Volvo buses available throughout the city. From the airport, you can take a shuttle bus to reach different parts of the city. The Bangalore Airport Bus Service operates buses frequently throughout the day, and there are a few buses which run in the night as well.

Ola cabs and Uber are available within minutes when booked through their app or through calls. Three-wheeled auto-rickshaws are a popular means of transport.

There are around 40 metro stations spread over Green line and Purple line with the Majestic station (Kempegowda interchange) being the only station which connects these two metro lines. The Purple line runs from Mysore road in the west to Baiyyapanahalli in the east whereas the Green line connects Puttenahalli in the south to Nagasandra in the north-west. The metro is operational from 5 am to 11 pm in the night.
