Bandra (Marathi: वांद्रे ) is a railway station on the Western line and Harbour line of the Mumbai Suburban Railway network. It serves the Bandra suburban area as also the upcoming commercial area called Bandra-Kurla-Complex (BKC). Bandra Terminus is near to Bandra railway station and serves Interstate traffic on the Western Railway.
All Fast and Slow Local Trains have halt at Bandra Station. Suburban Local Trains on Western Railway towards Borivali, Virar (North) as well as towards Churchgate, Mumbai Central (Inter-State Train Terminus), Dadar(South) have a very good frequency (one Local every 2-3 Minutes). Bandra is also directly connected to Mumbai CST through a Branch Line via Wadala Road (Harbour Line, Central Railway). However, Suburban Local Trains are often too crowded. 'BEST Buses' are also available from 'Bandra Terminus Bus Stand' or 'Bandra (West) Bus Stand' ; both being very close to the Railway Station. Auto Rickshaws are also available.
The charm of this station in its station building and canopy. Sloping Mangalore tiled roofing, spacious layout and Grecian facade add to the beauty. After decades of neglect, it has recently (2008) been restored.
