  • How to get to IIT Bombay?

    IIT Bombay is located at Powai, which is a 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, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (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 Navi Mumbai (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 IITB 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.

    Stations for Through Trains Coming to Mumbai. 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 to IITB. 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 from Kanjur Marg to IITB Campus.

    Central Railway: Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), Dadar, Kurla, Thane.

    Western Railway: Mumbai Central, Dadar, Bandra, Andheri, Borivali.

    Air Ports. International flights land at Terminal 2, Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport, which is about 10 kms from IIT Bombay. The Domestic Airport is at Terminal1A and Terminal1B (Santa Cruz), which is about 15 kms. Call taxis, pre-paid taxis and autorickshaws are available at the airports.
