Lonar can be reached by both bus and train easily.
BUS: Buses generally go till Aurangabad, from there you need to take another bus going to Lonar (150kms). Although, the frequency of the bus is very less.
From Aurangabad go till Jalna (60kms) by hired vehicle/bus. From Jalna buses are available for Lonar (90kms).
You may go to Sultanpur (142kms) from Aurangabad by bus. From Sultanpur, frequently buses go to Lonar (13kms). This is a slightly longer route, but at least one doesn’t have to wait at the bus stands.
TRAIN: We travelled by this option during our trip. The nearest railway station is Jalna and from there one has to travel by bus, as mentioned above. The Jalna Bus Stand is 2-3 kms away from the railway station, so you may walk till the stand or hire a rickshaw (50-100Rs).
We travelled by 17057 Devagiri Express that departs from Mumbai (CSMT) at 9:10 pm and reaches Jalna Station at 5:00 am. Thus, it does not waste your day in travel and also one gets a good sleep.
