Indian Statistical Institute


How to reach

If you are coming from the airport, drive towards Dunlop Bridge. If you are coming from one of the railway stations (Sealdah and Howrah), you will have to drive five kilometers north of Shyambazar five-point crossing, towards the Dunlop Bridge. As you approach Dunlop Bridge, the boundary wall of the ISI campus will be visible on your left.
Bus routes:
The residential campus is at the Bus Stop called Bon Hooghly (Gate number:205) and the office campus is at the Bus Stop called ISI or Statistical (Gate number:203). The Bus Stop further to the Statistical Bus Stop is Dunlop Bridge, which is an important landmark. Dunlop Bridge is also a useful way of describing the general destination when you are asking for directions.
Taxi routes
We suggest that you should better hire a taxi from the prepaid taxi booth, located outside the station and airport premises. The prepaid taxi fare is marginally higher than normal (approximately Rs. 220 from the airport, Rs. 180 from Howrah, and Rs. 120 from Sealdah) but it is a surer and safer mode of transport. While hiring a prepaid taxi, mention Dunlop Bridge as your destination.
