Bus service to Mysuru Airport: An airport is deemed to be a success only if it is well connected from various parts of the city. As soon as flight lands, there should be a connecting bus waiting for the passengers to be ferried to various locations of the city. Similarly, there should be bus services to the airport bringing air-passengers from various city suburbs before flights take off. This avoids people taking expensive private taxis to the airport, who (taxi operators) charge a “bomb” for the service rendered.
Taxing people heavily for commuting to and from the airport is in fact exploitation, which increases the overall cost of travel for the passengers. This may bring down people’s interest in taking flights to travel. The consequences of this are losses for the airport.
An airport is also a commercial entity like any other business whose motive is to operate profitably so that operational expenses can be taken care off with the money earned. So, the airport needs to make profits.
Volvo bus service to the Mysuru Airport
To make the airport easily accessible to the passengers from various Mysuru suburbs, KSRTC is starting “Volvo bus services”, which can make passengers reach the airport at highly affordable costs.
If the overall cost is reasonable, taking flights to various cities from Mysuru makes sense. This will attract more and more people to do air journeys and save a lot of time, thus making their travel convenient and pleasurable.
Following is the timetable of Volvo bus services from various locations and bus fares. This was released by KSRTC itself recently.
However, for the convenience of the passengers, KSRTC should list the timing on its website and the passengers should be able to book their tickets online.
