BIAL Taxi Drivers Harass Passengers

Getting down at Bangalore Airport, I was slapped in the face by a sharp reminder of where I was.

Airport drivers clustered around me, asking me where I wanted to go. All I wanted was a nice, hassle-free journey to where I stay. But that was not to be.

On the way to the bus stop, pushing my luggage trolley and nervous about the new place, I found myself pestered by 15-20 rude taxi drivers. Even after making it clear I was going to use the bus, they kept trying to convince me to use their taxi.

This was harassment by the taxi drivers. BIAL has to keep them in line as well as the emigration and other airport officials who ask unnecessary questions before letting you through.

Who am I kidding? I felt harassed by pretty much everyone in BIAL, Bangalore and India.
