IIT Bombay is located at Powai, which is an eastern suburb
in the North-Eastern part of Mumbai. Mumbai is in the form of a long narrow island, almost a peninsula,
thrusting south wards into the Arabian Sea. It can be broadly divided into four zones :
There is also New Bombay (Vashi, Turbhe etc.) across Thane Creek on the mainland.
Here is a map of Mumbai, and this is how it looks from a satellite. The dark areas indicate the tree cover which is prominently visible in the area representing the Aarey Colony and the Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Borivali. Somewhere to the south of that dark patch, Powai Lake (the smaller one) and Vihar Lake (the bigger one) are also visible. IIT Bombay is situated touching the two.Public Transport in Mumbai
Mumbai has one of the most efficient and reliable public transport networks. One can travel by Autorickshaws / Taxis to reach IIT from the nearest stations(Autorickshaws, however do not go further south than Sion and Bandra). For longer distances, you can use either the BEST Bus Network or the Mumbai Local Train System. The approximate Bus/Autorickshaw/Taxi fares are given below:
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, Goregoan or Malad. Stations for Through Trains Coming to Mumbai are :
There is a terminus at Kurla where some Central as well as Western Railway Trains terminate. There is no convenient bus route from Kurla terminus. An autorickshaw is the best option. However it would be more economical to take a suburban train from Kurla to Kanjur Marg and then take an Auto.Air Port
International flights land at Sahar Airport which is about 7 kms from IITB. The Domestic Airport- SantaCruz is about 10 kms. Pre paid taxis are available at the Airports. Autorickshaws are also available for IIT.
