Taxi is probably the best option to move from the airport to the city centre.
There are two types of taxis operating from the airport: The normal metered taxis and the prepaid taxis.
We strongly recommend to use the prepaid taxis because you will be sure what are you going to pay prior contracting it and you will receive a receipt. Do not pay anything extra after.
The counter to buy the ticket for prepaid taxis is located just as you exit custms. The journey to Mumbai city center can take from 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on traffic.
Auto rickshaw is a typical method of transportation in India and consists in a three wheeler vehicle. This metered mode of public transport operates only in the suburbs- post Bandra in the western suburbs and till Sion in the central suburbs.
We recommend you to arrange the price with the driver and pay according the meter or the figures that you have said. Auto Rickshaws are available at the Domestic Terminal.
