Bengaluru’s transportation woes reached a new height when a resident, Rajesh Bhattad, brought attention to the staggering costs of booking an Uber past midnight from Kempegowda International Airport to HSR Layout. The revelation prompted some to humorously liken it to ‘breaking a fixed deposit’.

Sharing his experience on social media platform ‘X’ (formerly Twitter), Bhattad posted a snapshot displaying Uber’s jaw-dropping fare of nearly ₹2,000 for a journey covering approximately 53 kilometers from the airport to HSR Layout. The post-midnight scenario, often associated with increased pricing, revealed Uber Go, Uber Go Sedan, and Uber Premier charging Rs. 1,931, Rs. 1,846, and Rs. 2,495, respectively.

Bhattad, acknowledging Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) with a tip of his hat, opted for a bus ride home at a mere Rs. 270 to Rs. 340, in stark contrast to the ‘sky-high’ cab fare. The post garnered significant attention, triggering a flurry of responses and alternative suggestions from the public.

While many rallied behind the BMTC bus alternative, acknowledging its affordability, some raised concerns about the challenges of securing last-mile connectivity after disembarking from the bus. The post encapsulated the collective exasperation, with one commenter humorously stating, “FD todna padega bhai” (Brother, one has to break the fixed deposit).
