    I have joined the forum to find out how far is Pune from Mumbai? I would like to know the road distance and not the aerial distance.

    I am considering taking a bus from Mumbai to Pune, and that is if the distance between these two places is reasonable.
    Would getting a train from Mumbai to Pune be a better option?

    These buses have different pick-up points in Mumbai like Borivali, Andheri, Vile Parle and Santa Cruz. Journey duration depends but it's around 4 to 5 hours.

    3. By Train - There are many trains from Mumbai to Pune. Here are some timings:
    • Mumbai Pune Indrayani Express Train No. 11043 - This train departs daily from Mumbai at 5:40 and arrives in Pune at 9:08.
    • Intercity Express Train No. 12127 - This train departs daily from Mumbai at 6:40 and arrives in Pune at 9:57.
    • Lokmanya Tilak Visakhapatnam Express Train No. 18520 - This train departs daily from Lokmanya Tilak Terminus at 6:55 and arrives in Pune at 10:15.
    • Deccan Express Train No. 11007 - This train departs daily from Mumbai at 7:00 and arrives in Pune at 11:05.

    • Sinhagad Express Train No. 11009 - This train departs daily from Mumbai at 14:30 and arrives in Pune at 18:40.
    Journey duration is around 3 to 5 hours.

    Both bus and train are good options. The journey duration is not that long so you can choose either one of them. The higher classes of seat in the train can be very comfortable. The same goes for more expensive buses, they're more comfortable. So it's really up to you. Perhaps the downside of riding a bus is the traffic that you'll encounter. But if you leave early, you won't have to deal with that.

    I hope this helps!
