      Bombay Electric Supply & Transport Undertaking is known by its abbreviation BEST. It has a monopoly in bus transport services within Mumbai. Their importance is next only to the famed Local Electric Train in keeping Mumbai alive and kicking in throughout the day.

      You will not find anyone who can find fault with the services BEST buses are offering. BEST buses cover the entire Mumbai including the suburbs and beyond.

      BEST bus services are so famous that other bus services that cover


      outside of Mumbai live in fear of them. These competitors went to the extent of blocking BEST bus services in their area.

      BEST has a huge fleet of buses including the famous double deck buses, Air-conditioned buses and new breed of sleek and colorful low floor buses. They also have reserved seats for ladies, old and physically challenged persons.

      BEST continuously looks to update its services and cover new routes. It has a well maintained website which shows all the routes and maps ...


      • of the routes on which the buses are operating.

        Despite all these measures they are running in thin margin are in losses. This is mainly due to the reasonably priced tickets and big staff cost.

        BEST offers its staff a decent salary to maintain their living standard in Mumbai. This takes a big toll on its profitability.

        They cannot raise ticket prices either since either since BEST is a semi government organization and is indirectly controlled by politicians. As a regular customer I

        have not faced any big issues with the services or with its staff.

        Occasionally you may come across a rude conductor. There are ways to make complaints against errant staff if the behavior is not good.

        BEST management takes these complaints seriously and tries to attend as soon as possible. I would strongly request fellow Mumbai people to use BEST bus services as much as possible so that traffic congestion can be reduced and pollution can be curbed within the city.

    You can get the bus to Nasik directly from outside the Airport. Apart from that, you can get the bus from Bandra East. There are many points, indeed. It depends on the bus on which you have booked the ticket.

    You need only one bus. All types of buses - general to luxurious like Volvo - are available fro Nasik.

    Mumbai to Nasik is also quite busy route. You can find bus from 4 AM to 11 PM at regular interval.

    Hi, There are no air conditioned luxury buses available from Mumbai to Nashik. However regular buses not that much comfortable or clean are available in good frequency from Dadar Railway Station . To reach Dadar you need to capture a taxi or auto rickshaw at Airport . The approx. distance is 8 KM. Alternatively you may try to get taxi to Nashik - the cost would be approximately INR 3000 to 4000. But please be aware that the taxi driver may try to get maximum money from you. Aggressive bargaining is required if no prior booking is done.

    Hi Sekar,

    Now there are many luxurious buses plying between Mumbai to Nasik. Just check the redbus.in and you will find a lots of options available.

    I don’t think that there is any need for taxi unless you have too many luggage.
