The National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS), situated in the heart of the garden city, is a familiar landmark.
The NIMHANS campus is located on Hosur Road—an arterial road that emanates from the centre of Bengaluru and leads to Electronics City (and stretches up to Hosur in Tamil Nadu). Easily accessible from all parts of the city, the campus is around 40 km away from the Kempegowda International Airport and approximately 8 km from the Bengaluru City Railway Station and 7 km from Kempegowda Bus Station (or Majestic Bus Stand).
Directions from Kempegowda International Airport:
The travel route from airport runs through Bellary Road, past Mekhri Circle, and the central areas of Bengaluru around Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium and MG Road. From Richmond Circle, near MG Road, take a right down Double Road/KH Road towards Shanti Nagar Bus Station and head straight to reach Lal Bagh Botanical Garden Gate. Take a left, from Lal Bagh Gate, and proceed straight to hit the NIMHANS junction.
The Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) runs airport shuttle service (24/7) with a fleet of air-conditioned Volvo buses – ‘Vayu Vajra’. The buses connect the airport and the city through various routes, making about 250 trips each day at a frequency of 30 minutes (https://www.mybmtc.com/airportservices). Airport taxi service can also be availed for travel to Bengaluru city and vice versa – Karnataka Taxi (KSTDC), MegaCabs, and Meru Cabs are the official taxi operators.

BMTC operates buses of various classes (from regular to premium A/C buses) from different parts of the city to NIMHANS (https://www.mybmtc.com/). Taxies and autos (metered and pre-paid) are the other convenient modes of transport easily available in the city.
