BASICS The airport is located 19 miles (30 km) north of Mumbai. Sahar is the international terminal; Santa Cruz, 15 miles (25 km) from Sahar, is the domestic terminal. There are regular shuttle buses between the two.
TAXI There are counters at the airport where you can book a taxi for a set fare. You will get a coupon to give to the driver, so there will be no uncertainty over what the fare will be. Fare to the center will be about 300 rupees ($7) and the trip will take from 50 to 90 minutes. Metered cabs are available, but not recommended.
BUS Airlink operates a bus service from the airport to the Air India Building at Nariman Point. The fare is about 70 rupees ($2). Travel time is extremely variable, from 50 minutes to 2 hours if the streets are especially clogged, so always leave plenty of time when going to or from the airport. The bus is not always reliable, which is why a cab is recommended.
