Smooth ride on Expressway

Mode of Transport: Bus

We boarded the bus at Chembur at around 1115 hrs. It was a air conditioned bus with comfortable push back seats. It stopped on the way for 20 minutes for refreshments and reached Lonavala junction by 12:45 hrs. The bus did not go inside the Lonavala town and dropped us on the road side at the junction. We had to hire a auto rickshaw from there to reach the Sterling- Under the Over.

A great 2 hour drive!

Mode of Transport: Car

A great driving experience on the Mumbai Pune expressway right up to Amby Valley !!! On the way we also made a pitstop at the famous Dutt vada pav wala. Once you enter Lonavala you might hit some traffic at the Kumar resort junction if it's a weekend. But the drive up to Amby is beautiful.

Excellent cab service from Mumbai to Lonavala

Apr 20, 2016
Mode of Transport: Taxi

I have been a regular visitor at Fariyas Resort in Lonavala. I prefer taking a cab since it avoids the hassle of driving on the route which is crowded on weekends.

I looked up online for "Mumbai to Lonavala Taxi One way" since I wanted to travel on friday and return on sunday, and I came across multiple websites. The intercity cab business in India is improving quickly, as on earlier trips I have chosen to travel by my own car since cabs used to be too expensive. I compared fares on various websites and I chose to use onesidetaxi, since their website looked really professional and they were offering me the best fare.

Just like their website, their booking process was also extremely professional and I did not have to call them even once to confirm the booking. It was a hassle free process on their website and I received an instant confirmation from them. They even sent me the driver's details in time so as to enable me to communicate with him.

I had only requested a regular sedan, however, I was pleasantly surprised by the free upgrade to a corolla altis. The driver was extremely friendly, and the car had an excellent music system with bluetooth music as well as GPS navigation.

I had an excellent trip and I would recommend onesidetaxi to all holidayiq travellers.

Well-maintained seats and good AC

Mode of Transport: Bus

Mumbai is the place where you have many ways to travel to your destination. One of the best way which I have travelled to Lonavala was this AC bus. It has a push back seat and it also has a TV. The seats are properly maintained and the AC was quite good. One can enjoy this ride. This travel also provides Mumbai darshan.
