Krishnarajapuram [KJM] (or 'KR Puram' for short) is perhaps the best connected railway station in Bangalore after Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna [SBC] (also known as Bangalore Junction or colloquially as Majestic). Here are some of your connectivity options:
1. If you exit the station on the north i.e. Platform 1, you can catch 300 series buses headed towards Kempe Gowda Bus Station (Majestic) or Shivaji Nagar in front of the ITI campus at the U-turn under the cable-stayed bridge. These buses will pass through Rammurthy Nagar, Banaswadi, Maruthi Sevanagar and Frazer Town.
I saw an OLA pickup point/shelter just outside PF.No.4. But it was deserted or perhaps defunct.
People from Whitefield/ITPL/Hope farm instead of taking ITPL main road route which has Phoenix mall traffic, Choosing Old Madras road via Hoodi bridge which save you much time and frustration due to traffic. Before KR Puram bridge, take left and using the under bridge road, one can reach PF#1 ticket counter avoiding entire conjugation at KR Puram flyover/ Tin factory. This tip is useful only when traveling towards KJM. Pls refer the screenshot attached.
Best way in using DEMUs/MEMUs that start from BWT/Marikuppam. From KJM you can reach SBC in just 30min whereas in bus it would easily 1 hr to even 3 hours..! Mon-Sat we have 10+ services for the same. Except train, Catch taxi and reach Baiyanppanahli metro somehow and fly to SBC on metro in just 20-25 min...

How to reach SBC from KJM , Train, Bus or Auto
which mode is easiest and shortest ...
Suppose I reach KJM by 16339 at around 1000 hrs, if train is in time
Wouldnt provide an auto- Taking majestic bound bus (304, 319C and many others with board as Kempegowda bus stand/Majestic/KBS) is a better option as trains arent frequent at that time
Even 500BC,500N go towards banashankari and even plenty of private bus operators operate bus up to banashankari but I don't recommend using the private buses as they put very loud music which is very disturbing and use the private bus as last option if there are no BMTC buses available.
KIAS-8,KIAS-8C routes available towards airport
For going to majestic it is better to buy an unreserved ticket and board a MEMU/passenger or an UR coach of express train as it is very cheap and faster option.
Agreed...Airport services are best...bit of high fare but you can count on them to reach places on time...KJM is a place wer massive traffic jam occurs....if you could skip it....rest way will be smoother...!!!
U mean Tin factory is a place for traffic jams
KJM too. Particularly in the evenings there is a huge pile-up on the outer ring road from B.Narayanapura till the signal opposite to KJM PF 4 ( Under the flyover). Tin Factory's traffic mela for trffic coming from Hebbal/BYPL side.
