    I have joined this forum to simply find out how one can reach Marine Drive?

    I will soon be going to Mumbai for a short stay and I want to visit the famous places there. I don't know where I will stay in Mumbai, so please give details like the nearest train station or bus station to Marine Drive.

    You can reach Marine Drive by train, bus or taxi.

    By Train
    You need to reach Marine Lines train station when you come out of the station Marine Drive is at a distance of 2km from there. You can easily get an auto from outside the station to reach Marine Drive.

    By Bus
    There are two buses which go to Marine Drive, bus number 108 and bus number 123. As you said you don't know where you would be traveling from you will need to find out which bus route would be most suitable for you.

    By Taxi
    Getting a taxi is easy just let the taxi company know you want to go to Marine Drive. This is probably the easiest and convenient way of reaching Marine Drive.
