Mumbai, earlier known as Bombay, is the capital of the State of Maharashtra. Since most of the countries big financial institutions (like RBI, Stock Exchange and so on) is located it Mumbai, it is also considered as the financial capital of India.

Now, Mumbai is often called the City that never sleeps, owing to the commercial and financial activities that the city witnesses even during the night times.
I travelled by VRL on 5th Aug,2016, reasonably I could say that the travel was excellent as usual considering traffic in Mumbai, passengers delay at the boarding point, these are unavoidable, inspite of all this odds the driver was able to reach us on time, kudos to them.
Didnt had a good experience. I booked a sleeper coach bus (VRL), but by the time it reached pune bus broke down. They transferred us to a seating coach bus with no seating arrangement. Public just rushed and grabbed the seat. I chose VRL coz of its service (although fare is high than others) but was very disappointed with the service.
I reminded the driver and the cleaner about 6 times that I wanted to get down somewhere close to Gokarna, was never informed while passing by. No apologies no proper service. Nuisanc.
I had the information of the bus well in advance and so didn`t have to face the anxiety The bus arrived on time and was in a clean condition. The staff were very cordial. There was an unfortunate incident in the Yellapur ghats but was handled well by the staff and a new bus was arranged as soon as possible.
