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 modern 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 commuter trains have a halt at this station. Bandra is also directly connected to Victoria Terminus through a branch line via Vadala Road. 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 is in its station building and canopy. Sloping Mangalore tiled roofing, spacious layout and Grecian facade add to the beauty.
