Arrival in IIT Bombay India

IIT Bombay is located at Powai, which is a Eastern Suburb in the north-eastern part of Mumbai. Mumbai is a long narrow island, thrusting southwards into the Arabian Sea. It can be broadly divided into four zones. South Bombay (Colaba, CST,Fort, Chruchgate, Nariman Point), Central Bombay (Dadar, Bombay Central, Worli), the Western Suburbs (Bandra, Juhu, Andheri, Borivali), and the Eastern Suburbs(Kurla, Chembur, Ghatkopar, Mulund, Kanjur Marg, Vikhroli). There is also New Bombay (Vashi, Turbhe) across the Thane Creek on the mainland.

Public Transport Mumbai has one of the most efficient and reliable public transport networks. One can travel by autorickshaws or taxis to reach IIT from the nearest stations (autorickshaws, however do not go further south than Sion and Bandra). For longer distance, you can use either the BEST Bus Network or the Mumbai Local train System.

Suburban Railway Transport Those coming by Central Railway Suburban train will have to get down at Kanjur Marg, Vikhroli or Ghatkopar which are the nearest stations from IITB. If you are coming by the Western Railway Suburban train you will have to get down at Andheri, Bandra, Goregaon or Malad. We give below the road network to reach IITB along with the approximate bus, autorickshaws and Taxi fares.
