Shirdi is situated in Maharashtra state, India. The nearest airport is Aurangabad ( 126 kms ) but most devotees who travel from abroad reaches Mumbai airport. I write this article to help both the locals and also devotees from abroad to reach Shirdi safely from Mumbai.

To help Saibaba devotees to reach shirdi by bus , car,Taxi :

For Sai devotees from America, Europe, Malaysia, Singapore , Dubai and other middle east countries , I tried to give basic information about their journey from Mumbai to Shirdi.

Guidance to help Sai devotees coming from Foreign countries to Shirdi :

The distance between Mumbai to shirdi is approx 260 kms. Mumbai airport is also the closest international airport to reach shirdi. So sai devotees who wish to come to india especially for shirdi darshan can come to mumbai and then take a Bus or taxi to shirdi.

Flight which reaches india in day time is fine :

Try to book a flight which reaches india in day time so that its easy for you to get buses to shirdi as most of buses from Mumbai to shirdi starts in evening.

From Airport to Dadar or any place where you can get shirdi bus :

If you are sure you can check out of the airport before 9 Pm indian standard time, then its ok to travel to Dadar by taxi from where you can get Bus to shirdi. Tell the cabs driver that you wish to reach the place where you can get buses to shirdi.

I don’t have any association with travel agents or taxi or bus. There are few who provide shirdi Cabs services direct airport pickup ,you can choose the car you wish to travel. search with term ” Shirdi cabs ”

Make sure you are aware of approx cost, prices are listed below. There are bus to shirdi which starts even at 11 in night but if you come alone and for women sai devotees, its not safe. Ofcourse everyone says Saibaba is there to protect. You also have to plan your trip safely.

Taxi from Mumbai to Dadar to get shirdi Bus : 200 to 500 Rs ( 10 to 15 $ max )

Bus from Mumbai to Shirdi

Non Ac Bus - 200 Rs ( 5 $ )

Ac Bus - 250 Rs

Volvo Bus - 300 to 450 Rs. ( 10 $ )

Shirdi Cabs - Hiring a car can take you shirdi with in 5 to 6 hours

Cabs from Mumbai to Shirdi - 3500 INR to 6000 INR for one way. ( approx 90 $ to 150 $ ) .. Must be within 12,000 R.s for two way if you return within a day.

If your flight arrives late night to Mumbai airport or too early in the morning, better stay in a friends house or hotels in mumbai . There are few near airport. I really don’t have idea about budget Hotels in mumbai. If your flight arrives early morning 2 Am to 4 Am , wait in airport for 2 hours and then take taxi to Dadar to take Bus to Shirdi.

Theres a cabin inside airport campus itself to book taxi or you can check For airport to dadar or andheri east pick up. I recommond them as i have experienced their service though a bit expensive.

Bus route from Mumbai to Shirdi :

Some buses goes to Nasik and then to shirdi others take a short cut avoiding nasik.

Bus route - Mumbai- Nashik- Niphad- Yeola - Shirdi

Pune and Aurangabad airport can be a option to reach Shirdi:

Distance between Pune to shirdi - 190 Kms

Bus route - Pune- Kalamba- sangmner- Talegaon- shirdi

Distance between Aurangabad to Shirdi 126 kms.

Bus route - Aurangabad- Vaijapur Yeola- Kopargaon-Shirdi

Theres also a Airport in Pune and Aurangabad . you have to check if theres convinient flight to reach Aurangabad.

I feel I am like a river, having my own course, stream and flow but the final destiny is to be one with the boundless ocean of my Sathguru Shirdi Sai Baba.

Amidst all the worldly rituals I am performing,I do not dare to loose sight of my Sainath. He is the sole driving force, the guide and the Supreme master.

The strings of my life are in his hand,I am just a puppet at His Holy Feet.
