Recently, Phase 1 of the Multi-Modal Transport Hub (MMTH) at Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru was opened for the use of passengers/travellers.
Bengaluru is the first city in India to get a Multi-Modal Transport Hub (MMTH). Most airports in India are not integrated with Multiple modes of Transport under one roof.
The MMTH will have various modes of transportation including Private Car parking, BMTC bus services, Flybus services and upcoming Metro stations under one roof.
Phase-1 of the Multi-Modal Transport Hub has already integrated BMTC bus services (towards Bengaluru), Private Car Parking, Taxi services and Flybus services, etc.
Phase 2 of the MMTH will integrate the upcoming Blue Line of Namma Metro (Silkboard-KR Puram-Hebbal-KI Airport) with the existing facilities available in the hub.
MMTH will be a 5-storey structure integrating various modes of transportation. The breakup of MMTH and its functioning is as follows:
Level 1: Ola/Uber zone, Car parking and Retail outlets; Level 0: Metro Station, Ola/Uber pickup point and Parking, A central corridor with retail outlets.
Basement 1: Arrival passengers pick-up point, Car parking; Basement 1.5: BMTC Vayu Vajra services; Basement 2: Car parking; Basement 3: Baggage Handling System [Information Courtesy: MoneyControl].
Where is MMTH located? Multi-Modal Transport Hub is located in close vicinity of Terminal 2 of Kempegowda International Airport. Proper signages have been provided to guide passengers from Arrivals/Departures.
As of now, KIAL authorities are running Inter Terminal Shuttle services between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. The service is free to use (No need to have a valid travel ticket).
Alternatively, one may also board the Vayu Vajra bus service from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2. The service is free to use. However, one cannot use BMTC buses to go from T2 to T1 (they may use Inter Terminal Shuttle buses).
