Colaba gets its name from ‘Kolabhat’, a word in the language of the Kolis, the indigenous
inhabitants of the islands. The Bombay, Baroda, and Central India (B.B.&C.I) Railway
established the Colaba Terminus, and started the first suburban railway in India between
Virar and Colaba in 1867. From 1896 to 1930, Colaba station served the residents of
Fort and the adjoining areas, but was increasingly rendered inadequate for the growing
passenger load and could not be extended. The station was shut down in the 1930s
.
