Mumbai is located at a distance of 344 km from Surat. Surat, popularly known as The Silk City, is well-connected to Mumbai by road and rail.
However, the best way to reach Surat from Mumbai is by train. The major stations covered are Surat, Borivali and Bandra Terminus in Mumbai. The journey can be completed in less than 4 hours.
We recently travelled from Surat to Mumbai Airport. We were travelling one way, so we were looking for discounted fare. Most of that taxi guys though were offering discounted rates but were not giving confirmation.
Then one of my friend recommended in Vadodara to try oneway cab service. He has used for taxi for Vadodara to Ahmedabad Airport. It was a one way trip. Well, they informed they have just launched this route. They have instant confirmation and that too at very discounted fare. Rs 3600 only. We paid toll tax of Rs 450.
I must say good taxi service if you are travelling one way from Surat to Mumbai.
I visited Mumbai via train i.e. Karnavati Express. The journey was very pleasant. The train provided memorable views during the journey. The train is clean so one can easily travel for long time. The toilets of the train are very clean so the passenger shall not have an issue. I had ordered food in the train and it was very tasty. The good thing about the train is that the train is not over crowded so one can easily travel. Overall a very good experience with the train.
It's was good traveling by road, the highway was very good and also all the facilities like dhaba and petrol pumps are easily found. In May month the traffic is there but the roads are clean so itís easy to ride and Mumbai is a metro city so more facility was available on its road including traffic.
