Hi below details would provide you ways to reach Pagoda By Public Transport from Mumbai City Reach Borivali Station on the Western Railway Mumbai Suburban line. This station is a major terminal on Western Railway’s Mumbai suburban services. It is also well connected by State Transport Buses from Thane, Navi Mumbai & Mumbai cities. Exit on the Western side. From Chandavarkar Road, which is perpendicular to the railway line on the North End of the station, take BEST Bus no. 294 and 247 to Gorai Creek (Also known as Gorai ‘Khadi’ in vernacular) Alternatively, you can take an autorickshaw to the Gorai Creek. The Creek is about 3.8 km from the Borivali Station. At the Gorai Creek, you will have to take a boat to the other side of the creek. There are two options for this: Take the Esselworld Ferry Service, costing Rs. 50 for a return trip, or the local ferry service, costing Rs. 5 for a one-way trip. If you take the Esselworld Ferry Service, you will disembark at the Esselworld jetty, from where you can walk to the Pagoda following the signs for the same. The last ferry leaves to the Global Vipassana Pagoda at 5.25 pm The jetty on the other side of the creek for the local ferry is quite far from the Pagoda; hence you may have to take public transport on the other side. BEST runs a bus service, Bus no. 711 between the Pagoda and the local jetty every Sunday between 11 am to 6 pm. From Bhayender Station (W) MBMT (Mira Bhayandar Municipal Transport ) route no. 4 Bus is available for Global Vipassana Pagoda. Timings 6.30 am to 6 .45 pm. Fare from Bhayandar Stn to Global Pagoda is Rs. 13. There are alternative routes to reach the Pagoda, including an Esselworld Ferry service from Marve Beach, which is reached via Malad Station on the Western Railway Mumbai Suburban Line. However, the route(s) recommended above are the best possible and fastest routes to reach the Pagoda.
