Hired taxi at the Pune Airport

Taxis leave from a stand located near the Shivaji Nagar bus station on Ganeskind Road, near Fergusson College Road, about 20 minutes from downtown. For a minimal additional charge, the taxi will take you directly to the Trust Office in the Meher Nazar Compound. Otherwise, its destination is the taxi stand near the Ahmednagar S.T. bus station.
