Hi guys..

Have anyone of you tried this before? I take a quick look on their website and found that they connect from many points in bangalore to the airport, some even at odd hours (ie. midnight).

So I am going to fly on the morning of 14 October 2012 at 6 am. So I will probably have to depart from my place from 3 or 3.30 in Bommanahalli. I saw the schedule that the BIAS-8 which is the one that connecting my place leaving the destination at 3.00 am. The link is here (http://www.bmtcinfo.com/site/BSBusSe...?bsserviceid=1)

I am not so sure if that means the bus will start moving from 3 am at the first point, or does it means that it will reach bommanahalli at 3 am?

Maybe I will try the bus or maybe for the return trip, I know it can be dangerous at midnight, but I just wanted to ask nonetheless. Is this bus reliable?

Thanks

I would not trust that timing to be able to make my flight. May be an earlier one would be better for ones sanity.

If thats an international flight, the normal checkin time is 2 hours or more before.

My flight is departing on 06:20 am, and I saw the departing time of the bus is 3 am, that's why I am asking. Anyway I am just asking, probably too early and dangerous to walk out and wait for a bus, might try it for the night return trip from airport to bommanahalli.

I made a quick search on cab fare too and it seems that yourcabs have the best rate for a midnight ride, approximately 660 rupees from bommanahlli to airport.

Since Bommanahalli is not listed anywhere on the schedule, the Bus is scheduled to leave Electronic City at 3am. Timing of buses are hardly reliable. Have a backup plan. What if you miss this bus? If you have to use a taxi, use one of the approved operators as listed on the BIAL website. The others will charge extra as they are not allowed to pick up passengers at the airport.

If you are going with the cab, try Ola Cabs : http://blog.olacabs.com/bangalore-ai...rs-at-just-500

My friend has had a pretty good experience with them so far and they are by far the cheapest.

If you want to know the timings of the BIA8 from electronics city, try this number 7760991268. It is pretty reliable from the last time I tried it.
