Mumbai to Goa fastest train

The Mumbai to Goa fastest train is the Jan Shatabdi Express.

It leaves Mumbai in the early morning and reaches Goa by afternoon. The travelling time to reach Goa from Mumbai by the Jan Shatabdi express is roughly 9 hours.

However though it is the fastest train, not everyone opts for it, as it takes away your daytime. Many people instead prefer to take the Konkankanya which leaves Mumbai at late night and reaches next day morning at Goa. Konkankanya travelling time is roughly 12 hours. Many people prefer this train because they can sleep in the train, and does not cost them a full day.

However the Jan Shatabdi express train is the fastest train available to go from Mumbai to Goa.

Buses take usually 12 hours and generally leave from Mumbai at night.
Airline flights take only 1 hour of flying time, and are usually available from 5 a.m. in the morning to 6 p.m. in the evening. Flights take off from the Santacruz airport at Mumbai and land at the Dabolim airport at Goa.

Train tickets can be booked online at the Indian railways official site, or reserved through travel agents.
