The Mumbai-Goa Vande Bharat express will run everyday except for Fridays. On Fridays the train will go for maintenance.

According to officials the train will see good occupancy as there is a good flow of crowd on this route throughout the year. 

The Konkan Railway route is now serviced daily by forty pairs of trains. Three Vande Bharat trains from Mumbai are already running; they go from Mumbai to Shirdi, Mumbai to Solapur, and Mumbai to Gandhinagar. 70% of the seats on these three trains are occupied.

Currently the fastest way to reach Goa from Mumbai is getting on the Tejas Express. It takes 8 hours and 50 minutes to cover the distance. But Mumbai-Goa Vande Bharat promises the journey in 8 hours.
