What is the cost to ride on the Mumbai Railway and the Mumbai Metro?
metro is not yet complete...mumbai is best with local trains.. would recommend to buy a first class ticket
The prices are dirt cheap, but the crowd is crazy. I'd recommend taking first class (Rs 100-150) if you're going anywhere on the train. And definitely avoid rush hour. Weekends are the best time to take the train.
It's extremely cheap! Mumbai local trains start with the minimum fare of Rs 5 for shorter journeys. You can buy return tickets too. There are some 2-day and 3-day travel-as-you-like tickets as well.
The Mumbai Metro starts from Rs 10 upto 40 for a single journey. Refer http://www.reliancemumbaimetro.com/fares.html
Mumbai trains are extremely crowded. Try the off-peak hours or the weekends, when they are slightly less crowded!
