How to Reach Mysore

Mysore is one of the more well-connected cities in Karnataka and is accessible through road, rail and air. Although Mysore has its own airport, it is not fully functional and doesn't connect to all major cities. So tourists can access Mysore through the Bangalore airport (170km). Getting on a train to the Mysore railway station is a very convenient way of travel as daily trains ply here. Bus services are also regularly running and finding a seat is never a problem.

The best way to travel within the city is to hire an auto rickshaw. They are the most reliable and accessible way of commuting within the city as one can pay by meter during the day. However, after 10 pm, they charge 50% more than the meter reading, and after midnight you will have to pay twice the meter reading. One can also hire private taxis for the whole day from Car rental companies. Many hotels provide this service as well. Buses are also run by the State Government in and around Mysore. They run along fixed routes, and the cost is nominal. One popular mode of commuting among the tourists is the Tonga which is a horse carriage.
