Reaching NCBS

NCBS is approximately 25 km from the airport and 10 km from the central bus/railway station at Majestic. From the airport, you can take a BMTC air-conditioned airport shuttle bus towards town, and get off opposite the GKVK (the agricultural university) main gate, which is between Yelahanka and Hebbal. NCBS is situated inside the GKVK campus, approximately 1.5 km from the GKVK main gate, so it's an easy walk if you don't have much luggage (there are nice mango orchards on the way!). You may catch an auto rikshaw from the GKVK main gate to NCBS as well.

Alternatively, you can take a cab from the airport. Don't take prepaid cabs, they are excessively expensive. Instead, walk out of the airport and hail any taxi cab waiting outside. You have an option of getting an air-conditioned cab. Ask the cab driver to take you to "NCBS, GKVK, between Yelahanka and Hebbal". Once you are on the GKVK campus, almost anyone on the street should be able to direct you towards NCBS, and there are also small signs for NCBS along the road.
