If you take a taxi at the Railway/Bus station you will soon get on to Mysore Road. You will travel by the side of a long fly-over. End of the flyover is 8 km from ISI. Continue on Mysore Road - After some time you will get the BHEL factory on your right (4 km from ISI) -- continue on Mysore Road - soon you will get the huge Rajarajeshwari Nagar Arch (2 km from ISI) on your left - continue on Mysore Road - after some time you get the Jnanabharathi Campus of the Bangalore University (one km from ISI) on your right - continue on Mysore Road (do not enter the Bangalore University Campus)- Just about one km down Mysore Road, you get a Railway Level Crossing on your right.

Next to the railway gate, on Mysore Road, is Azad Coach Builders factory. If, by mistake, you reach the R V College of Engineering, you have gone past ISI by a km. Turn back and start looking for the Railway Level Crossing on your left now.
