Flybus service between airport, Mysuru a hit

Bengaluru: Buoyed by the growing patronage for its luxury 'Flybus' operations that directly connect the Kempe Gowda International Airport with a few cities in South India, the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) will increase its services to Mysuru shortly. With services to Tirupati launched last week and that to Kozhikode being contemplated, this first-of-its kind amenity in the country looks set to expand its footprint.

Launched in 2013 with the first bus running between KIA and Mysuru on August 14, services run to Mysuru, Madikeri, Kundapur, Coimbatore via Salem and Tirupati presently. Eight high-end buses, which have in-built toilets, run 16 round trips (onward and return) between Mysuru and the Bengaluru airport.
BT Prabhakar Reddy, Divisional Controller, Bengaluru Central Division, KSRTC, told The New Indian Express, "The four-hour trip from Mysuru to KIA is quite popular among passengers. Since it does not enter inside the City, the traffic problems faced by Bengalureans are avoided."
