Transport facility in Cochin is better than any other city in the country; it is excellent. See below for details on reaching ISED:
The Cochin International Airport at Nedumbassery is approximately 30 kms away from the Institute. Alternatively, you can take a flight to the Trivandrum International Airport, which is around 225 kilometers away from the Cochin City. But then, you have to have a further connection by train (4 hours) or by car( 5 hours).
Book through the Ernakulam Town (North) Railway Station, or Ernakulam Junction(South) Railway Station. The Institute is 4 kms from the Ernakulam Town Railway Station, and approximately 6 kms away from the Ernakulam Junction Railway Station. These two Railway Stations are well-serviced by several long-distance and local trains (see Indianrailways.org)
The Institute is just 8 kms away from the Ernakulam KSRTC Bus Station, which operates several buses to other towns and cities of Kerala, and of nearby states. There are also several private coach services connecting Ernakulam, with neighbouring cities and towns, mostly during nights (see http://www.keralatourism.org). ISED is just at a distance of two kms from the Vyttila Mobility Hub, the multi-mode transport hub of Cochin. While in the City, the Vyttila Circular Bus Service, which touches both the North and the South Railway Stations, will take you through the NH-47.Get down at the Puthiya Road Bus Stop; the Institute is just at walkable distance. Please note, buses in Cochin, unlike in other cities, are not numbered. Besides, destinations are often written in the local language, Malayalam. You are advised to seek the assistance of the bus crew, or at the nearest Passenger Assistance Booth.(Many of them understand English,you see!)
