Transport from airport/bus station/train station to venue
Direct Auto from Airport to College of Engineering, Shivajinagar, Pune. Pre-Paid auto is available from the airport. It should take around 100 to 125 Rupess by meter. Meter is measures using 8x+3 rupees rule, where x is the reading on the meter (=kms travelled). Taxis are difficult to find and will cost much more.
From other places take auto and make sure they come by meter, use the same conversion given above.
