While the international airport is at Sahar, domestic airport is at Santa Cruz. As many as 49 airlines operate services from Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) like Paris, London, Dubai, Frankfurt and Singapore. Pre-paid taxi service is available from the airport. Several Indian cities are connected to Mumbai. The international and domestic airports are not far from each other. Shuttle bus services operated by airport authorities ply between both.

Rail: Mumbai is connected to almost all the Indian state capitals through train network. Headquarters of Western Railways and Central Railways are located in Mumbai. To avoid congestion, trains terminate at stations spread across the city. While Western Railway trains terminate at Mumbai Central or Bandra, Central Railway trains terminate at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), Dadar or Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT). All the stations are connected via the suburban train service or the locals. Taxis and buses also ply from these stations to various parts of the city.

Road: Bus services ply regularly between Mumbai and cities like Bengaluru, Surat, Nashik, Pune, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Mangalore, Kochi and Goa. Some bus operators have their own websites to facilitate booking of tickets.
