Mumbai Airport to Pune

This is my guide on helping you make the best choice while travelling from Mumbai airport to Pune.
There are many options available through bus,train,taxi & even air (aprrox. INR 2000).
I had to come from Mumbai Domestic airport to Magarpatta and I weighed down all options.
Here's my analysis :

Mode

Details

Comfort

Availability

Price

Dropping Points

Train
From airport catch a prepaid taxi to Dadar railway station. There catch any train to Pune. There are many available, book tickets in advance.
Depends on your coach J
Frequent
150 taxi + 300 3AC
Pune Railway Station
Government Bus
Goto Dadar and catch Shivneri (Official luxury bus service of MSTDC)
Good
After Each half hour from 5am till 11 pm
150 taxi + 350 + (auto/cab to your location)


Swargate (not sure)
Private Bus (Neeta & others)
Available from outside of airport under the bridge.

From “Arrivals” at airport, get a quick auto and ask him to drop him under the highway for a bus to Pune. Behave as you are a regular traveller. Don’t pay more than INR 30 no matter what. Walk if needed and ask anyone on the way.
Bad since it stops at many places in Mumbai before leaving
Good, but depends on time/day/rush.
350-700 (bargain) + (auto/cab to your location)
Hinjewadi,Wakad, Pune Station (check for each operator)
Cab Shared(Sandis,KK others)
Pre-Book
Good
As per your requirement
700-800
Home
Cab Shared
Available from outside of airport under the bridge.
Follow same instructions as “Private Bus”.
Good
Good, but depends on time/day/rush.
250-450 (bargain) They’ll say same as Volvo. + (auto/cab to your location)
Hinjewadi,Wakad, Pune Station, ShivajiNagar. (or any on the way)

All prices are in INR. These are only approximate.
I choose the last and paid 400 from Airport to Magarpatta.
Hope it helps you.

  1. Mumbai is the largest metro city in India and its financial and fashion capital. The coexistence of the country's stock market and Fashion Street makes this city an exciting potpourri of several things. For more information visit Pune Mumbai Cab
