Transportation to Mangalore Airport from the City Center

Reaching Mangalore International Airport offers a variety of transportation options, each balancing cost, convenience, and comfort, catering to different traveler needs and preferences. 
The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) operates city buses across Mangalore and its suburbs, presenting an affordable travel choice with fares usually under INR 50. Although popular among locals, including school children, these buses may become crowded during peak hours. 
Auto-rickshaws serve as a flexible option for short distances and tight spaces, featuring metered fares with room for negotiation, especially after dark or over longer distances. While they're generally safe, solo female travelers are advised to exercise caution during late hours. 
Taxis provide a more comfortable alternative, though less common, and app-based cab services like Ola and Uber have surged in popularity for offering safe, convenient, and economically priced journeys accessible at any hour, with fares dependent on the distance and duration of travel.
Mangalore's connectivity is further enhanced by its two major railway stations, Mangalore Central and Mangalore Junction, which link the city to various parts of India. Trains offer a secure and cost-effective choice for long-distance journeys, with stations well-equipped with passenger amenities. 
For those prioritizing a direct route to and from the airport, airport transfer services are available, ranging from private vehicles and shuttle services to minibus carriers and coaches. This spectrum of services accommodates all from the budget-conscious and those preferring shared travel, to passengers desiring more private and luxurious transport options. These services can be booked in advance, providing a seamless travel experience to your final destination.
