Goregaon is a railway station on the Western line of the Mumbai Suburban Railway network. As a general rule, Virar-bound fast trains skip Goregaon, while Borivali-bound fast trains halt here (although there are exceptions). What distinguishes Goregaon from Jogeshwari is the four Churchgate-bound fast 'Goregaon Locals' (which depart from platform number 5)at an interval of approximately 30 minutes during the morning rush-hour.[1] The station currently has three foot-over-bridges. However the southern-most FOB serves passengers exiting the station on the western side only. The middle FOB is connected on the western side to a skywalk that leads to Swami Vivekanand Road. On either side of the station BEST has a bus station.
