CEO Shows How Cab Fare From Bengaluru Airport To City Costs As Much As Flight To Mumbai

Those who frequently travel back and forth from Bengaluru would know that it takes a lot of time and costs a lot of money to get to Kempegowda International Airport from different parts of the city. For a one-way trip, cabs often charge Rs 1000 and the price can skyrocket depending upon the weather and demand.

For example, Rohin Dharmakumar, who is the CEO of The Ken, took to Twitter to share two screenshots – one showing the price of flight tickets from Bengaluru to Mumbai and the second showing the cost of an Uber ride from Bengaluru airport to the city.

The price of Uber ranges from Rs 1260 to Rs 2638 while that of the plane ticket is Rs 2058. So an Uber XL from Bengaluru airport is costlier than a flight ticket to Mumbai.

Have a look at his tweet here:

While travelling to and from the airport can be an expensive affair, several people highlighted that there are cheaper options of commute available to the public.

For example, in January 2021, the Indian Railways began train services from Bengaluru city to the airport which cost only Rs 10, giving a much-needed respite to the passengers.

If cabs are so expensive, why not travel via trains and buses instead? Choose the cheaper option!
