Baiyappanahalli metro station is the eastern terminal point on the east-west corridor of the Namma Metro in Bangalore, India.[2]

BMRCL has constructed a skywalk from the Baiyappanahalli station to BMRCL's traffic integration area on the NGEF side (Kasturinagar). The commissioner of metro railway safety (Southern Circle) had given permission to construct the skywalk.[3]

Initially, there were no toilets at Namma Metro stations, despite demand from commuters. The metro's first toilets were opened at Baiyappanahalli and Indiranagar stations on 21 June 2013.[4]
