A ferry service will soon be launched between Gateway of India and Nerul. While it’s costlier to take this water taxi in comparison to driving down to Navi Mumbai or taking a train, it’s certainly convenient and hassle-free. A 42 km long journey between Princess Dock to Nerul will be cut short to just 19 km. Driving down to Navi Mumbai from South Mumbai would take around 1.5 hours.

This is much higher than a second class train ticket that costs ₹15 or a first class ticket that costs ₹150.
