Tourist hired car service

The Government of India Tourism provides a tourist car service. The charge is based on a kilometre rate, an overnight charge for the driver, plus half charge for returning empty. Air-conditioned cars are available. Inquire at the tourist counter in the International Airport or at any of the major hotels. Travel time to Ahmednagar is approximately ten hours.

Taxi

You can hire a taxi to take you directly from Mumbai to Ahmednagar at the Mumbai-Nasik taxi stand near the Dadar railway station on Lakhamsi Napoo Road. You can either hire the entire taxi (four seats) directly to Ahmednagar, or you can travel with the other passengers to Pune and then hire the entire taxi from there. Travel time is approximately ten hours.

Railway

The Indian railway is an inexpensive way to travel directly to Ahmednagar. Travel time is ten to twelve hours. Trains leave Chatrapathi Shivaji railway station in the Fort area twice a day, and sleeping berths are available. Women, however, should not travel alone on the evening Calcutta Mail. Be sure to purchase both a ticket and a seat reservation. As only second class is available on this train, it is not recommended if you are new to India or have a great deal of luggage.

Advanced reservations are usually required for travel to Ahmednagar. If traveling via the Mumbai-Calcutta Mail, check carefully that you are in the correct carriage. Only one, the carriage closest to the engine at the far end of the platform, travels to Ahmednagar. Shortly after midnight in Manmad, it is disconnected from the train and later attached to another train continuing on to Ahmednagar. The stations immediately preceding Ahmednagar are Rahuri, Vambori, and Vilad.

At the Ahmednagar railway station, rickshaws are available to take you to Meherabad. See Ahmednagar for advice on arriving at these early and late hours.
