Getting to PyCon India 2019





By Plane


Chennai has an international airport that is well connected to Europe, the Middle East, US, and South East Asia. It is also well connected by domestic flights.

Chennai Trade Center(Conference)

The easiest option is to take a metro from Chennai Airport towards Washermenpet Metro and alight at Guindy Metro. From the metro station, you can board one of these buses - 49, 54, 54D and get down at Contonment Cemetery. The venue is 200 meters from here. Alternatively, you can hail a cab from ride sharing services like Uber or Ola. Please do not try to get an autorickshaw as they usually rip off outsiders. Same goes for rental cabs at the airport as well.

IITM Research Park(Workshops and Dev Sprints)

Again, the easiest option is to take a metro towards Washermenpet and alight at Little Mount Metro. From there, you can take a bus towards Thiruporur(519) and alight at TidelPark. IITMRP is exactly behind Ramanujam IT Park. The distance from tidelpark bustop is 1Km
