Mumbai is India?s international gateway. It has also the busiest domestic air network in the country. The international terminal is at Sahar, which is 30 km north of the city center. The domestic terminal at Santa Cruz is just 4 km away. The offices of most of the international and domestic airlines are situated around Nariman Point. Prepaid taxis are available from the airports to the downtown.

Mumbai is a prominent railway hub of the country. It is the headquarters to two railway zones, Central and Western. The main railway station is Victoria Terminal, now renamed Chattrapati Shivaji Terminal. Other railway stations are Dadar, Churchgate, and Kurla. Express and super-fast trains are available for most of the Indian cities from Mumbai
For travel within suburbs- use the famous 3-wheeler vehicle called RICKSHAW(check picture). It's fairly cheap and they are available everywhere- no need to make phone calls. A whistle would work just fine!(check picture) Tips for hiring Auto-rickshaws Auto-rickshaws are allowed only in North Mumbai. No auto is allowed beyond Sion in Central side and Mahim on the Western line. Autos are not advisable for pregnant women, since auto drivers are notorious for rash driving. Always pay in accordance with the fare chart. For more info visit: http://www.aboutmumbai.com/Transport.asp
