The local name for IISc is 'Tata Institute' and therefore, it is important to use the name 'Tata Institute' with the taxi, auto drivers, and bus conductors.

From the Airport: Tata Institute (IISc) is about 30 km from the Bangalore Airport (both domestic and international). Prepaid taxis and Airport shuttle service are available at the airport to all parts of the city.

From the City Railway Station: Bangalore is connected to all major Indian cities by rail. Several super fast trains such as Shatabdhi, Brindavan, Lalbagh express connect Bangalore to Chennai. The City Railway Station is the main terminal in Bangalore. If you are traveling by train, you should get off at the City Railway Station, which is about 7 km from the IISc campus.
