hi,
Does anyone have a link for an online bus map for bombay? I've googled and found information about where each particular bus goes (i.e. stop names) but no map. Does a map exist? If there's no online one, can I get my hands on a paper one when I arrive? thanks!

Usually most small guide books available for about Rs10 have a rough map with a few of the bus routes for reaching most of the famous tourist places are mentioned so that should usually be sufficient for normal travel in Mumbai. And there is an online search facility for finding out which bus to take to reach a particular place from your starting point. I am not sure about the address right now but I do remember it being developed by some IIT students to assist the travelling public. Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Aadil.

I have not come across a bus route map .The BEST only has the route and stop names http://www.bestundertaking.com/transport/index.htm. This is used with the mumbai road map available for 10-20 rs like aadil said .
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare dream of meeting your heart's longing.

If you're going to be in Mumbai for a long period, buy the EICHER city map, it is a complete street map and also has 10 X more info than a guide book.

Highly recommended.

The Eicher Mumbai street map is very helpful if you want to get even the smallest street names in most areas. Hardly anything left out of Mumbai but it is a bit high priced if you buy it from a book shop. If you look around at the Flora Fountain streetside book stalls you may find a better bargain for a new map at almost half the original price so it is worth checking it out if you are here for a long time. It should not cost you more than about Rs75 to 100 for a good copy. Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Aadil.
