Mumbai to Pune via express-way!


I have travelled many times from this express way. This is one of the most important and prominent express highway in India. It has reduced a lot of travel time between the two cities. And only those guys will understand this fact who have earlier ravelled by the old highway. The lanes are sufficient to carry the traffic and properly planned. However there are few points that need attention like, 1) The speed 2) Accidents 3) Phone facilities 4) Security 5) Immediate Help (Helicopter) 6) Illegal exit and entry points. Apart from these, I personally like this route.

Beautiful scenic road drive


Drove on the Mumbai Pune Expressway, which is a six-lane concrete, high-speed Indian standards...!! The distance spans around 110 kms connecting Mumbai. It took around 3hrs to cover the distance, try leaving early in order to avoid the usual Mumbai traffic rush hour. The expressway begins at Kalamboli and and ends at Dehu Road outskirts of Pune. The road drive is just a beautiful especially during the monsoons, the scenic Sahyadri mountain ranges passes through three tunnels. Once the expressway ends then it gets a bit congested like Mumbai and it could even take you a couple of hrs. to get to the heart of Pune start early. There are some food malls on the way or if one wants a better choice then take a stopover @Lonavala/Khandala and then continue your onward journey or hop into this Parsee restaurant called Dorabjee's which is quite well known in Pune, to enjoy a typical Parsi meal.

Plenty of buses in this route


There are plenty of buses from Dadar to Pune. The bus stand is near the Dadar Rly Station. I took the 1430 bus to Mumbai. It was the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation Bus Shivneri AC Volvo. The seating were 2 X 2. The bus departed at exactly 14:30 and it took nearly 1 hour to leave the city limits. The bus stopped near Panvel for refreshments and nearly 30 minutes it stopped there. Thereafter the real sceneries of the Western Ghats started. The journey was through the Express Way and it took nearly 1 hour to reach the point to enter the Pune City limits and from there it took nearly 40 minutes to reach the Rly Stn Bus Stand. The Bus fare was Rs.490/- and it was a nice journey and the bus was not full.

Excellent drive on Pune expressway but avoid at night


Excellent drive on Mumbai-Pune expressway! Cruise speed. The break at Lonavala - the quality of restaurants and hygiene is disappointing. Booth rooms better to avoid. We stopped in between to click photos. We took a small detour in Lonavala. But people feeding wild monkeys are of little concerned, they are so used to humans feeding that they are used to junk food, some looked so obese. Avoid Pune expressway at night. You may drive careful, but other over speeding vehicles are scary. It is really annoying to see slowest vehicles in the lane meant only for overtaking or higher speeds. They won\'t budge or give way. The risk is it may also lead to road rage. Some points in the expressway are known for dacoity/looters robbing the cars. So, please avoid night travel.

Pune route is best recommended for travelling


We know how the roads and traffic of Mumbai are so there is no need of explanation at all. However even after the end of express way the roads are in very bad shape and there are two routes to reach but route from Pune is more recommended as one from Lonavala is not developed though the local state buses use that route. It is about 45 mins after Chandini Chowk in Pune and we need to take the same route as that of Lavasa. On the way there aren't much directions but GPS is the perfect and can be followed religiously.
