| BEST WAY DOWNTOWN:
The airport is located 19 miles (30 km) north of Mumbai. Sahar is the international terminal; Santa Cruz, 15 miles (25 km) from Sahar, is the domestic terminal. There are regular shuttle buses between the two.
There are counters at the airport where you can book a taxi for a set fare. You will get a coupon to give to the driver, so there will be no uncertainty over what the fare will be. Fare to the center will be about 300 rupees ($7) and the trip will take from 50 to 90 minutes. Metered cabs are available, but not recommended.
Airlink operates a bus service from the airport to the Air India Building at Nariman Point. The fare is about 70 rupees ($2). Travel time is extremely variable, from 50 minutes to 2 hours if the streets are especially clogged, so always leave plenty of time when going to or from the airport. The bus is not always reliable, which is why a cab is recommended.
Cars with drivers are available for the trip from the airport. They cost four or five times the taxi fare, but provide a much smoother trip. Check with the tourist information counter for booking information. There are no car rental counters at Bombay-Sahar.
