Lower Parel (Pronunciation: [pəɾəɭ], [pəɾeːl]; station code: PL) railway station is a railway station on the Western Line of the Mumbai Suburban Railway, India. The next station south is Mahalaxmi railway station; the next station north is Prabhadevi.

Lower Parel railway station has three platforms. From platform no.1, slow local trains go towards Dadar-Bandra-Andheri-Borivali -Virar, from platform no.2, slow local trains go towards Mumbai Central-Churchgate, and Platform No.3 is kept as a reserve that can be used in emergency and during mega-block on Sundays.

As Lower Parel has become a corporate hub, thousands of people use the railway station daily, which makes the Lower Parel railway station one of the most crowded local railway stations of Mumbai.

It will have a connection to phase II of the Mumbai Monorail,[1] due to open in 2015.

The Delisle Bridge, which connects to Lower Parel, was shut to traffic in 2018 and is expected to reopen in 2023 after pandemic-caused delays.[2]
