Traveling to Thane :

By plane
The nearest airport is the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport [1], Mumbai. Once you get off, you will need to take a taxi or hire a car. The distance to Thane is about 36 kilometers (22 miles), the drive can take between 45 to 75 minutes depending on the traffic.

By train
The best way to get to Thane from Mumbai using public transport is to take the local train service.

Although Andheri is the nearest railway station from the airport a better option would be to take an auto-rikshaw to Kurla or Ghatkopar station(both these stations fall on the central suburban line) and then board any suburban Northbound Local Suburban train (all local suburban trains halt at Thane)to Thane. You’ve the option to board a fast or a slow train. But better option is to board Thane Local Train which ends at Thane station. Trains can be located by Abbrevations for example T – Thane so any train with T abbrevation on Digital Train time display will end at Thane.

The auto-rikshaw ride to Kurla or Ghatkopar stations would cost a little more, about Rs 60 to Rs 70, compared with Andheri which will be about Rs.40 to Rs.50 but you would end up saving about 1 hour to 1&1/2 hour. An added benefit is that you get to board a direct train to Thane thus avoiding the change over at Dadar.

Other option if you are coming from the airport is, take an auto-rickshaw to Andheri station which is served by the Western Railway and buy a ticket to Thane. You need to take a southbound train towards Churchgate, get off at Dadar (which is the interchange point) if possible avoid peak hour journey if you are new in Mumbai specially between 8 and 11AM or between 6 and 8PM, get on the Central Railway Line and then take a northbound train to Thane. This method is recommended only if you are adventurous at heart and are not carrying any luggage.

Thane is also well served by long distance trains, many of which stop at Thane station en route Mumbai.

By car

Toll gate while entering Thane via Eastern express highway.
Two main roads enter the city from Mumbai. The older one is the Lal Bahadur Shastri Marg (commonly abbreviated as LBS Marg) and Eastern Express highway. Both of them are toll roads – the toll gate (called naaka) for the former is called Mulund Checknaka while that for the latter is called Anand Nagar Octroi Naka. The toll at both the naakas is 30 rupees one way for a car which is somewhat unfair because there is a huge difference in the condition of the two roads.

LBS marg is invariably congested, encroached upon and potholed. It goes through the heart of Mumbai’s Mumbai/Central Suburbs. The Eastern Express highway is wide, well-maintained and smooth. It goes through an uninhabited area where development is prohibited. Use this road to get in, even though the distance will be slightly more. The roads intersect at Marathon chowk (“Marathon square”, because that’s where the Thane Mayor’s Marathon starts from.). LBS marg then goes right through the city, while the Eastern Express highway skirts it and turns into NH – 3 highway to Nashik and Agra.

By bus
There are very few BEST buses that go right up to Marathon Chowk (It is known as “Teen Haath naka”)- 399 and 496 Ltd. Once you get off, catch a TMT bus or auto-rickshaw.From this spot Thane railway station is hardly 10-12 min walk if you go by following Gokhale Road , & auto should not cost more than 10-15 Rupees.

There are few more BEST routes that enter into Thane. 499 – Ghatkopar Depot to Vrindavan Society. 493 – Anushakti Nagar to Balkum via Majiwada. 494 – Ghatkopar Depot to Retibandar Kalwa.

TMT Bus 65 from Thane (East) will help you go to Godbunder road, Dahisar and Borivali. Its a Volvo A/C Bus.

There is also a normal bus available for the same route as 700 Ltd. Similarly the TMT and NMMT buses have started Volvo buses to Borivali which is cheaper and comfortable then BEST Kinglong bus. The route numbers are TMT: AC65 and NMMT: AC131.

Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) also called ST bus service from Thane railway station west frequency every 15 minutes.

BRTS Buses originate from Cadbury Junction for Backbay and Nehru Planetarium. The TMT Volvo buses also have started bus service to BKC and Andheri from various parts of Thane City via. Cadbury Junction.

Thane Municipal Transport (TMT) commuters helpline number 1800-22-9901 to get the information about TMT buses

By auto-rickshaw
The most common way to get around in Thane is to hire an auto rickshaw which runs on Fuel. Payment is by meter. Recently the government as made it compulsory for the auto-rickshaws to install an electronic meter which shows the amount and the distance traveled. If you know the approximate km to destination, then you can negotiate the charge lumpsum before hand e.g Thane to Sion is 15-18 km and fair charge would be Rs. 130-140 (latest rate) but the meter will show Rs.180-190. Thus fixing 140-150 before sitting saves you a lot of headache.

By taxi
If you are on a day trip from Mumbai, one of the options is to catch a taxi in Mumbai and use it to go around Thane city. You cannot flag down taxis in the city as you won’t find any, but you can certainly hire one.
