Even if you want to start your journey from Pune, take a bus from Pune to Panvel and board this train at Panvel. 1 to 2 hrs saved depending on what part of the city you are located.

A Super Crap Train. Traveled By His On Last Saturday. It Reached Vapi 15 Mins Late. I Had A Ticket Of 1st Class. Hence, I Was I A Perception Of A Comfortable Journey. But I Was Shocked After Boarding . What I Saw ?
1. A Dirty, Messy Compartment Which Wasnt Cleaned Probably For A Year
2. In A Coup Of 2, Great WESTERN RAILWAYS Started Accommodating 6 People [ 3 In Lower Berth & 3 In Upper Berth]. I Failed To Understand Whether It Was A 1st Class Or A General Seating
...
more...

3. 3rd Gender Activities Are Happening In Front Of The TTE, Who Opted To Be A "Silent Audience"
4. People Boarding The 1st Class At Will Without Bonafied Tickets
Will Never Ever Travel By Super Crap Gujarat Express..... Indeed A Train Of "Gujarat Model"

If nonsense stuffs are happening in "many trains" that doesn't mean civilised people will stop traveling by train. It's the nonsense stuffs which will have to end

If you want to avoid the large crowds in the main entrance, you can take the entrance/exit at the Platform 6 side. Autos etc are available here and its much less crowded. Uber/Ola taxis and local buses also available. There are restaurants nearby.
