    I will be going Mumbai and would be traveling by the local trains. One of the places I would be visiting will be Juhu beach.
    I would like to find out which is the nearest railway station to Juhu and exactly how far it is from the beach, and whether I would further need to take public transport to reach the beach.

You can opt for normal metered taxis and their rates would be slightly higher, but they won't have surge pricing, unlike Uber or Ola Cabs.
