If you stay in any city other than the three mentioned above, you can also board a flight from your city to the nearest airports. That is, The Aurangabad or the Pune Airport. From there, you can take a cab or bus to Shirdi.

Trains from Mumbai (Dadar Central), Hyderabad (Secunderabad), Kolkata (Howrah Junction) and Mysore come to Shirdi. More often than not, Shirdi is the terminal stop of these trains. Therefore, you must plan your trip accordingly. Depending upon your original destination, your train journey can last from 15 to 24 hours. Also, you must keep in mind that most trains get delayed and they make numerous stops along the way.
