  • Convenient for tourists. Because announcements are made in Marathi, Hindi and also English languages. 7 platforms for local trains out of which first 2 are for harbor line, 3 & 4 are for central line slow and 5, 6 & 7 are for central line fast trains. One of the biggest architecture of the British style and era. Security is needed very badly. The subway is very convenient for passengers. Mostly less crowded station. But very crowded during peak hours.
