Railway being cheap way for commutation to many, Vangani station receives passengers from many near by villages: Karav, Pashan, Shil to name a few. ST bus is well connected to station. Major crowd is engineering college-going students - where I teach electrical engineering. College is located on small hills in Karav village, around 3 Km away from the station.
