Share your experience - Rate Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, Mumbai

  • It's a Sea of humanity at all times!!! People thronging in the morning, afternoon, evening and night. Rush hour all times. People make you move here... :D Clean surroundings, friendly and helpful staff. Local train from one side and long route trains from the other. Easily accessible from all sides. Infrastructure wise top rated.

  • Infrastructure is like testament to time. Easily accessible and very convenient. But I miss mobile charging points. In this decade of connected world. Everything runs on Internet and frequent battery drains make it worse. So Plz install as many points you can.

  • Earlier it was known as Victoria Terminals or VT. Renamed to Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminals or CST. One of the oldest and biggest railway stations in the country. Well maintained. Heavily crowded. One side local trains to all over Mumbai and other side trains to all over the country. A wonderful and beautiful station.

  • One of the main railway stations of INDIA. Train towards Western India halt here. Local train station is adjacent to it. Almost all facilities available here. Heavy rush of Mumbai.

  • Trains on Harbour line, central line can be boarded from here. Intercity trains begin here. Taxi and buses are available outside the station for local travel and to tourist spots. Buses are the cheaper option. Taxis run by meter but some drivers charge exorbitant amounts instead. You can book Ola or Uber too. Small shops and eateries shops are present outside the station in the subway and across the road.
