Mumbai, the financial capital of India lies on the western coast of the country and houses the famous hindi film industry, Bollywood and headquarters of several financial institutions. Mumbai is not only the fastest growing city in the country but also one of the most populated cities in the world.
Although located along the sea, the city of Mumbai extends over 633 square kilometers and travelling from one part of the city to another becomes quite hectic and inconvenient for the general masses. Public transport in the form of local trains, busses, taxi and rickshaws is available; however, with a city so huge and limited time in hands of people, convenience is often the chosen one. Private cab hire and car rentals solve the problem of travelling within and around the city the most. The famous black and yellow taxis are still very famous in South Bombay but when work is more, the best option is to hire a private cab for oneself for the day and leave the travel anxieties behind.
