Traveling can be one of the most frustrating part of a new job, especially in a city like Mumbai. You are already dealing with the anxieties of being among new people, adjusting with the new culture, settling in to a new work routine and add to it the commuting woes, which can well be the last straw for your already strained nerves. Also, if you are from out of Mumbai, you have food, bed and board to think about, too.
So, to make your journey to PCPL a little smoother, we have put together this piece on how best to reach us along with some help on settling in this city, if you are new, here.
To begin with, here’s where we are located in Kandivali East.
How to reach
No matter where you stay in Mumbai, the PCPL office is pretty convenient and affordable to reach because we are opportunely positioned right beside the highway as well as at a walk-able distance from the nearest railway station.
If you stay far, you can use Mumbai’s lifeline- the local train to reach Kandivali station on Western line and then opt to walk or take a ‘sharing’ rickshaw to reach the office from the station. The rickshaw fare is just Rs 7 to Rs 10 per head. If you are new to Mumbai, we recommend you download the m-Indicator app on your phone to work out all the train routes, timings and ticket fare. Those who stay in the heart of suburbs can choose to travel by bus, cab or auto as per their convenience. The nearest bus stop, Bandongri is right across the street from the office.
If you are among the lucky ones like our colleague Evgeny, who rents a place in a nearby residential building, you will be skipping in and out of office every day.
Around the workplace
As our postal address suggests, we are right beside one of Mumbai’s most beautiful malls, Growel’s 101. So, you will just have to hop to your right for some binge eating or window shopping, or catching up on movies, right after work or picking up some groceries and home essentials while going home. If you like playing snooker or other such games during your breaks, the game zone is not far away.
Also, if you love your junk food, you’ll get it right outside the office building, along with a chance for animal lovers to pet some of the stray dogs the commercial complex has adopted.
