Taxi / Auto:
The Mumbai metropolitan region offers a range of metered and radio taxi (Call-a-Taxi) services. Autos are also an important and popular means of public transport, as they are cheaper than taxis and abundantly available. Though in this region, the concept of online booking of taxi, cabs and of recent autos also is quite quick and successful. Radio taxis can be hired at domestic and international airports and Central railway stations where outstation trains terminate (Mumbai Central, CSMT, Dadar Terminus, Bandra Terminus, (Kurla) Lokmanya Tilak Terminus etc.) Radio taxies can be booked from 24 hours to 1 hour in advance from any of the following service providers to pick you up round the clock from any point you want them to. Finding the best route on Google Maps is the usual practice as there are multiple routes to reach to a destination and traffic condition on different roads keeps on changing.

The extensive network of Railways has three lines, namely the Western Line, the Central Main Line and the Harbour Line. Being a linear city, Mumbai is totally covered by local train network. The area from Churchgate to Virar is covered under the Western line via Western Suburbs, while the Central Main Line starts from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) and travels to Kalyan through the Central Suburbs and Thane. Kurla is the interchange point with the Central Main Line. Between Mumbai CST and Vadala, there is a common stretch of the Harbour Line
