Travel Tips For Pune-Mumbai /Mumbai-Pune train traveler:

I have travelled extensively on Pune Mumbai/Mumbai Pune route and know some hacks that will help you in your travel.

  1. In case of any Mega block (which is every sunday in CR), these trains are the first to get cancelled.
  2. The pass coach become general coach on sundays and holidays, in case you are traveling un-reserved on these days you have a greater chance to get a seat in these coach (the tag outside the coach will still say its for Pass Holders only)
  3. You can easiely get a seat in General class if you reach at station before the train arrives (around 45min before the departure time)
  4. You can travel in reserve coach with your general class ticket and sit on any vacant seat. If TC ask, he will charge your Rs.15/- extra and allocate the seat to you.
  5. In case you do not get a seat in general class, try SLR class (this coach is next to engine). Quitely go and occupy a seat there.
  6. The trains after 7am and before 5pm are not croweded unless its a special occasion, you can travel in general class and save on your reservation charges!
  7. Use UTS app to book you un-reserved tickets
  8. In case you want to buy chikki, go for Lonavala Brand chikki. Other brands are not good.
  9. You can use long distance ticket in local train as well.
