One of the most important station of Central railways.From here,you can get buses of pmpml to different parts of pune city.Also,for going towards mumbai,Volvo and scania buses of MSRTC are available near pune railway station,walkable distance of 2 mins.Taxi is also avaible but they charge high.
Swargate bus stand is little bit far away but pmpml buses/auto are avaible.Swargate is one of the busiest and important bus station as from here many routes are avaible to go towards like kolhapur,nashik,nagpur,baramati,solapur etc.
Strict 5-6 TCs will be there for checking the ticket at pune
Please never opt Meter Taxi, they are dacoits. Prefer ola or uber
General coaches are a hell. Gets fill up to the brim (but still lesser crowd than Indrayani exp) from Pune itself. Worst even on Weekends or Festive time.
So if you wish to travel between Pune-Mumbai/Dadar , then book a 2S seat. The tickets are generally available even at morning on the journey date. But do book in advance if its weekend or Festive time like Shiv jayanti or Ganpati.
CC are generally available all the time and its CC has good cancellation rate.
Same here with Deccan Queen here . It dosnt have much crowd than Pragati , Indrayani.
How to reach nashik faster from pune in 5:30 hours
At present there is only one train between pune and nashik but in the morning there is no train between pune and nashik that's why here are tips for reaching nashik in less time
1.take 11010 Sinhagad Express from pune at 6:10 AM
2.Get down at Kalyan Junction 8:45 AM
Buffer Time is too Less i feel
How much shuffling in terms of PFs?
Which class of Tkt? or GS?
Any distance restrictions in Pushpak?
pushpak allows bookings from kyn to nk
I travelled using General ticket
that day Sinhagad arrived on PF 5
Then it's well and Good, Pushpak would be at Adjacent PF Only
Usually Sinhagad Arrives at PF7, But 25-30Mins TAT is 2 Less I Feel
hmm..yes..if sinhagad arrive ontime then we can travel like this
but CR can't able to run Pune Nashik ICE or mail/Express because of traffic in morning time
Sinhagad,Nanded Panvel, deccan queen,sahyadri,pragati,
Also there is freight traffic if it would go via panvel
It can be used if its railfan with no luggage and physically fit.
Else its hassle for short distance,
Generally Sinhagad wd be on time at KYN.
I had travelled 9 - 10 years ago in this train . One time from Pune to Goa and one time Pune to Nizamuddin. But it's a request don't feel bad if I say something little bit about this train , because when I travelled by this train I noticed these some things while travelling by this train . This is a good train from Pune to Goa but not good train from Pune to Delhi . Because when I travelled in this train last time we had to do Tatkaal booking since me and my family decided to travel by train from Pune to Delhi. Almost the booking was full , The route covered by this train from Pune to Delhi is very long , also LR requires at DD . In case of food , food of this train was not so good was OK . I didn't face
I have seen Poor and Lower middle-class people spend the whole night on Railway Platform and Waiting halls at Pune Station to board this train at 4 am in the morning. And moreover, this train has very minimal seats for the Pune quota. The majority prefer the Evening departure Jhelum express.
Pr Jhelum ka bhi vhi conditon hai , par timing ka utna koi bhi problem nhi hai.
Jhelum ka accha advantage voh hai ki Pune se Atleast shuru hoti hai toh Reservations toh atleast mil pati hain.
