There are several ways to get to the Gateway of India. Here are our suggestions on how to get to the monument.
Mumbai is one of the few places in India that has metered taxis as standard. You should always try to go by the metre instead of bartering for a price to avoid paying too much for your journey. Remember to tip your driver directly. If you are unsure about how much a taxi will cost, check with your hotel concierge.
Another popular way of getting to the Gateway of India is by train. The closest train station is Churchgate, and it is a two-kilometre walk to the arch, which takes around 15 minutes.
The cheapest way of getting to the Gateway of India is by bus. From Mumbai Central, take the 133 to Dr. Shamaprasad Mukherji Chowk/Regal and walk five minutes to the monument.
