As per 2016 chart, taxi seems to be very expensive, is there any local bus service available for Palolem ?

It might have increased now. There was a taxi strike in Goa a couple of months ago.

There was a report which mentioned of a direct bus from the airport to Panaji / Calangute. From Panaji take another bus to Palolem.

Bus trip from Airport to Palolem - takes around 3 hours according to google map.

Not the most convenient or preferred, but exists. (sounds similar to can I walk to Palolem from the airport - yes you can, but not the most convenient or preferred option! )

Hi,

Was in Palolem just last week...the government recognized prepaid taxi fare from the Airport to Palolem/Canacona is INR 1950/-.

It was Saturday evening & due to mad rush at the prepaid taxi ticket counter I hopped outside the Airport and booked a taxi with one of the unofficial private taxi operators - it was a well maintained AC car - he charged us INR 1800/-. It took us around 1.5 hours to reach Palolem in normal traffic.

I am not aware of any Bus service from the Airport to South Goa as such...

Thanks for the update amit.
What I had mentioned was regular bus service from the road outside the airport (source - google map) and not an Airport shuttle.
I think the airport shuttle is only for North Goa as of now - Panajim and maybe Calangute.
