I read this in the Indian Express newspaper:

Quote:
The new taxis, most of which will be six-seater Innovas, will ply passengers on a share-basis directly from the airport to Pune. The fare is Rs 375 per person but Rs 195 toll tax will be also be shared among the passengers. “It is a point-to-point service and the black-and-yellow taxi drivers do not need to feel threatened.
Rs 375 + split toll is pretty cheap!

The taxi of course won't leave till it has full passengers, may be 4 apart from the driver if its a small car.

Lets hear from someone who has used this. But definetly an option which one can evaluate if this is operational.

True, but even mini buses run by Sandy's/ KK wait if their bus is not having enough passengers to make it a profitable run.

The only situation one does not have to wait is when the entire cab is for him.

There are anyway shared cabs between Mumbai & Pune. In Pune you find it at Parihar Chowk (Aundh) and in Mumbai .. under the flyover at Dadar!

Yup. I used to pay Rs. 200 for a seat in a car from Pune To Mumbai. And I didn't even have to share in the toll (This was back in 2007 though - the rates may have increased now. I used to get in at Parihar Chowk & get down at Chembur.

This is off topic. The OP was referring to some option from Airport to Pune, which would be an alternative to the KK travel or the Sandy's.
I do not think there is any update on it though.

Ummm, i just traveled this saturday from domestic airport. You can get a shared cab from outside of domestic airport and they would ask somewhere around 350 but if you would say 300 then also it should get you to Pune Station. The only catch, you have to wait till the cab gets full.
