Mumbai is well connected to all the cities of Maharashtra by bus. Intercity bus services are also very well serviced and feasible.
The Public Bus Service (BEST) is run by a government organization "The Brihanmumbai Electric Supply & Transport Undertaking". The main BEST Depot is in Colaba. It has a fleet of red single and double-decker buses. There are newly introduced air-conditioned buses as well. Mumbai's buses are good for traveling short distances in the city. Fares around South Mumbai are very cheap. Getting on a double-decker bus is a good, cheap way to have a look around Mumbai. Route numbers and destinations on the front of buses are written in Marathi; English signs are on the side.
Mumbai's yellow and black taxis are a convenient way to travel around the city. A tariff card converting the meter reading into rupees fixes payment. A Taxi ride is the safest bet for a traveller based in South Mumbai. Cool Cabs, blue and air-conditioned taxis are also available. Auto-rickshaws are confined to the suburbs of the city. There are no Auto-rickshaws between Colaba/Mahim in the west and Colaba/Sion in the east.
All cabs and auto-rickshaws follow a separate midnight fare, which can be verified on a fare card. Insist on paying by the meter-you can pick up a fare card of your own from the local railway station or from any traffic junction.
