There are Automatic Ticket Vending Machines as well, installed at various spots on a station where a ticket can be printed if you have your Smart Card for tickets topped up or recharged. But the stations that I got down at, which are Mumbai Central, Churchgate and Borivalli, these machines were out of order.The lifeline of Mumbai starts at 4am and runs up till 1am, some trains reaching the last station at 2am as well. However, it's advisable to avoid travelling in a local between 7am and 11am and 5pm to 10pm, due to the maddening rush. To reach a station, one can either take an auto or a bus or go walking. Catch the designated local till the station nearest to your destination and again take an auto or a bus or walk up to your destination.So, to all those planning their first or next trip to Mumbai, travel like a localite. There are scores of people who take a tour around a new city, but very few like us, who go to experience and LIVE the place .Happy Travelling :)
Its just passed away with meetups with old friends and hanging around at McDonald's and some more shopping.At nite headed to Leaping windows followed by YougurtBay for some yumilicious ice cream
The Churchgate area has some pretty fantastic eateries, especially around the station side. One such lane can be found right by the infamous Fashion Street. For more such lanes, walk on over to the Azad maidan, that can help you out with items such as sandwiches, cold drinks, and fruit juices.
Also known as the VT station, this is one of the busiest railway stations in the city. It is connected to all four railway networks linking the various corners of the city together. The architecture of this building is sight to behold.
Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a historic railway station in Mumbai, Maharashtra. It serves as the headquarters of the Central Railways. Designed by Frederick William Stevens with influences from Victorian Italianate Gothic Revival architecture and traditional Mughal buildings, the station was built in 1887 in the Bori Bunder area of Mumbai to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. The new railway station was built on the location of the Bori Bunder Station and is one of the busiest railway stations in India, serving as a terminal for both long-distance trains and commuter trains of the Mumbai Suburban Railway. The station's name was changed to its present one in March 1996 and it is now known simply as CST (or CSTM).
