The length of the city is almost the same as Bombay. The Vashi and Airoli Bridges connect New Bombay to Bombay. The Mumbai Trans Harbour Link will soon link South Bombay with New Bombay.

Most of the residents work in Bombay. Since the region shares the same area code as the city, not many are aware that they are dwellers of an independent city. Software Companies have their offices in New Bombay.
