Khar Road is a railway station on the Western Line and the Harbour Line of the Mumbai Suburban Railway network, in the Khar suburb. It is close to the Bandra Terminus for upcountry trains.

The name of the station is derived from the name of the koli village Khar-Danda, near the Arabian Sea. Danda is a home to fishermen. Now a link will connect from Khar Danda to Bandra - Versova Sea Link.
