Mumbai - Essential Information
There are two airports in Mumbai, The Chattrapathi Shivaji (Mumbai) International Airport, and Santa Cruz Domestic Airport. Mumbai Airport is the busiest airport in India, and is 35 km from the CBD. Santa Cruz is 25 km from the CBD.
Expect to take around ninety minutes to get into the city centre as the traffic can be very heavy. Take a prepaid taxi that are available outside arrivals and there is a free bus service between the two terminals.
This includes taxis, trains and BEST buses. Probably the fastest way of getting around is by local train. City buses are fine for short trips with fares starting at 2 rupees. Be prepared for crowded conditions on all local transport. BEST buses go out to all corners of the city. Tickets can be bought from the conductor on the bus, but do avoid the rush hours if you can.
There is no shortage of taxis with the average price being 12 rupees per kilometre. They usually have meters. However, watch out for those metres set on the previous fares and make sure your driver has a conversion card.
The General Post Office is situated close to Victoria Terminus.
