Imagine the case where a car thief picks a car from the parking lot and tries to drive away, what should the parking attendant do?
Because they were behaving like one, which is why the traffic police chap sided with me.

The time stamps on the platform ticket and train arrival time were < 10 minutes and the sorry part of it all, the parking tokens collected at the exit did not have car number mentioned on it. It was a red/yellow paper token with a day and time stamp; which means you can drive out in a different car than you came in in.

Take away is, in case you lose yours get another before you exit.

Speaking of parking in Bangalore city station, the one near the rear entrance ( PF 8 / 9 ) is PATHETIC !! Have not seen a more badly designed unit. Worse, inside there are no markings for entry or exit - or passage.

Is it safe the park the car there for an overnight journey? I need to travel to Chennai and will be back the next day, so thinking of taking the car and parking it there instead of depending on public transport.

Friends,

Have a query on KSR Bangalore City station. We will be enrouting through KSR after diwali break. The plan is we arrive by double decker at 1 PM, our next connection is at 8.20 (Udyan Exp).

Was Planning to do a bit of local sight seeing during the few hours we have, but i want to know if there is a reliablecloak room facility available at KSR.

Also what would be an ideal place to visit and get back to the station well in time to retrieve the luggage and board.

Cheers

There should be one on Platform 1 , have not used it though. Regards to sight seeing, you can cross the road and catch the metro purple line to roam around the Bangalore CBD including MG Road, Vidhanasoudha, Museum and again take the same metro back to Majestic to catch Udyan Exp. Or if you are interested in Old Bangalore, take a autorickshaw from the pre-paid stall and visit Gandhibazar, Basavangudi, Lalbagh etc and have sumptuous food at MTR
