Mumbai is one of the most populous cities in India hence one has to consider heavy traffic at all times. There are various modes of transport available within the city and function virtually round-the-clock:

The Mumbai BEST (Bus) network is quite robust and economical for daily travel. BEST buses can be spotted by their Red color and can be alighted from BEST bus stations that can be seen across the city.
Mumbai’s version of the “Tuk-Tuk” is widely available round the clock and follows a government issued meter fare. They can be spotted by their black and yellow color and can be hailed on any road across the city. Taxi stands are also available across the city.
