Mumbai Airport to Dadar by Train
There is no direct train service from the Mumbai Airport to Dadar. From the airport the traveler has to take a train to Dadar from the nearest suburban railway station. That would be Andheri, Ville Parle or the Santa Cruz railway station depending on whether you are travelling from the International transit airport or the domestic transit facility. Modes of transport are either the auto rickshaw (not advised if you are traveling with a lot of luggage or the number of travelers is more than 3) or the taxi. From any of these three stations you can hop on a local train to Dadar. It will take around 15 to 20 minutes for the train to reach the Dadar suburban railway station.
A word of caution though. Dadar is probably the most crowded railway station on the Mumbai suburban railway service after the Chattrapati Shivaji Terminus. After the office hours, that is after 5 pm things can get pretty rusty, especially for those who are unfamiliar with local train travel in Mumbai and those who do not believe in travelling light.
