Mumbai Local Trains

Mumbai local trains are called the lifeline of the city. Daily millions of travelers commute on these trains.
Mumbai suburban or local trains are divided into three broad categories:

1. Western Line: This covers local stations from Churchgate to Dhanu road.

2. Central Line: This covers local stations from Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji  Terminus (previously called as VT) to Kalyan, Karjat, Khopoli, Kasara.

3. Harbor line: This covers Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji  Terminus (VT) to Panvel.

Mumbai Local Train Tickets

To travel on these local trains, you will have to buy a ticket. You can buy a one-way or return ticket. 

  • The return ticket (day pass) is valid till the next day. 
  • You need to start the journey within 1hr of purchasing a ticket.
  • Legally you can use this pass for one TO & FRO journey.

If you are a frequent traveler, its better to get a seasonal pass i.e either a Monthly or 3months pass. These passes are very cheap as compared to the tickets.

You can buy tickets or pass for AC, 1st class or 2nd class. Ticket/pass cost varies as per the class.

You can safely guess that there is more comfort and less crowd in tickets with higher cost but it may not always be true.

Best time to travel in Mumbai Local

Mumbai local train starts at morning 330 am and runs till midnight. The least crowded hours are early morning before 630am, afternoons from 12pm to 4pm, and nights after 10pm.

Any time apart these are classified into rush hour and rush hour.

During rush hour, you will find it very difficult to board the train, and during crush hour, its impossible unless you are boarding it from the starting station.

Note: You can download the m-indicator app for train timings. It\’s a very easy-to-use app and gives you instant information about the trains from the origin station you selected.

Railway authorities are planning to provide free wi-fi on local trains in line with the wi-fi provided at many local stations. I have personally used this wi-fi at Dadar station and the speed was good enough for browsing.
