Passengers arriving SC by other trains and proceeding further through MMTS can also avail ticket booking exclusively for MMTS on counter between 6 and 7 platforms..This would save long walks to either exits for a ticket and time too!
Also ATVM machines are between PF-4/5 and 6/7 apart from the ones on PF-1/10 exits.

People from Western suburbs and gujarat (Vapi,Surat) get down at panvel itself , where it would surely reach 5-10 mins before time and catch 05:59 Panvel - Andheri local and get down directly at Bandra and catch any fast local furthur to Virar
Palghar/Boisar/Dahanu people - catch a fast local to borivali from bandra and you will get 07:57 Dahanu local from borivali
Gujarat bound people- Catch a fast local to borivali and there onwards Surat Intercity (if quick enough) or else Swaraj Superfast.
No changing of multiple trains or platforms
An easy and convient way to reach Western line/suburbs
Be quick at panvel in changing platforms and getting tickets for furthur journey (better use ATVM cards to prevent queues if any and save time)

A Better Option for Boisar/Palghar/Dahanu people ...
Get down at Thane and Head straight out to the MSRTC bus stand outside Thane Railway Station ..... Where there are Buses available for Thane-Boisar in Good Frequency ..... A best only Single Changeover ......

This tip is for visitors to some of Bengaluru's famous landmarks Vidhana Soudha, Vikasa Soudha and Cubbon Park. And also non-veg food loving Bengalureans.
Many state govts. offer highly subsidised meal at govt. canteens. But KA govt. doesn't do that but has a Govt. canteen run by the Fisheries department which offers food at a cheaper rate than outside. It's called Mathsya Darshini. It's located at Cubbon Park.
are many items some of which are available seasonally or on certain days of the week only. But the most popular and available daily is the Fish Meals. It consists of a bowl of rice, a big ragi ball, rasam, a cup of buttermilk and 1 big full Fish or 2 good sized pieces.
Any of these you can take extra too (see menu). The ragi ball is pretty big and if the need be you can ask for extra gravy too (free).
Timing: 12 PM-8PM, all days. But avoid 1 PM-2:00 PM on weekdays as it is the time when Govt. employees from all the surrounding Govt. offices converge here. The queue to buy the token and to take meals is very long. In the evening ragi ball won't be available, I was told.
The place is spacious with blue sheet covering to give a feel of ocean :) Filter water is available. Lots of seating is there, even table to stand and eat. There is a small fish tank with some ornamental fishes in it; you can sit next to it and admire and eat.
Govt. run aqua pet shoppe is there in the front to buy ornamental fishes. There is a Govt. fish shop too with variety of fishes, prawns, crabs...
After seeing Vidhana Soudha, in the opposite is a road that leads to Cubbon Park, if you walk into it and ask for "Govt. Fish Hotel", people will direct you. Or you can walk towards K.R. Circle from Vidhana Soudha and at the circle take left into Cubbon Park, you will get this hotel.
Both ways just few hundred meters from Vidhana Soudha and also Metro station (you can take metro from SBC (Majestic) to Vidhana Soudha).
After the meal, if you stroll into Cubbon Park, to the immediate left you will find a Govt. Horticulture Dept. Shop on the footpath (under a canopy) selling juices and dry fruits. Grape Juice is best, also there is Mango juice. Both priced at Rs.15 (He may say 20 but you insist that you know the price is 15).
Ask for cold one, chilled among blocks of ice (no extra cost). If you take the bottle home to ferment and drink, then its 20 rs.

I have bought Blue Crabs in that govt shop. The cleaning is good. 1st time seeing govt workers working efficiently.
Food - I always buy fish gravy in boxes, because eating there - the queue is long and so many govt. employees keep coming constantly.

Pantry Menu-Be careful,this train has a record of hawkers entering into the AC coaches wearing fake pantry shirts with no id's and after giving the product will say you that they don't have change and will get in some time and then they never turn up.
